Simple place with good food

Stopped in for lunch after hearing about it on Food Network's DDD. I had the egg salad sandwich which was tasty. Wife enjoyed crab and Swiss melt on rye. Best part was the homemade onion rings- those are a must.

Always a great breakfast for reasonable prices. The wait can be a little long at times, but certainly well worth the wait.

A friend of mine vacations in the general Portland Maine area every summer. I asked him where the best lobster roll was, and without hesitation, he said "Becky's". I took his advice and was glad I did. I had the lobster roll and my wife had the lobster dinner. Both were exceptionally good!! During our trip to Maine we had... More

This is a great stop for breakfast- and on my 5th trip to Maine I finally gave in because I couldn't get breakfast at Hot Suppa. It was packed and we drove over to Becky's. Becky's serves real corn muffins not ones from mix and they are outstanding. The hash browns were browned perfectly And the bacon crispy. Everything including... More

We ate here twice while in Portland last weekend. It was great both times. The breakfast is fabulous, the dinner choices are good too. Waitstaff is friendly and accommodating.

It was late morning on the cusp of almost to late for breakfast but to early for lunch and a nice hospitality gent which Portland has walking around offering advice to tourist recommended Becky's Diner. What a find, we sat at the counter, which I love, and had a great waitress. We ended up getting lunch, fried chicken sandwich and... More

We loved Becky's diner we ate there both notes we were in town. We actually walked down from our hotel. We had see Becky's on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives and made it a plan to visit the restaurant. Well....... My husband was hooked. He got the fish platter one night and the meatloaf the next & could not get enough.... More

I ordered the chowder and the fried haddock sandwich. The chowder was ok ( needed to be thicker). The haddock sandwich was delicious! Disappointed the turkey meal was I only for dinner.

Service is great, food is good but pricey for what it is. The wait can be long and parking is tricky. Standard diner fare, but hit the spot.
