Visited this diner while on business and got the Fisherman's Platter which was more fried seafood in one plate than should be allowed by law. Every last bit of it was delicious. The service was outstanding.

Had breakfast at Becky's diner. We had blueberry pancakes that were fabulous. We also had a fruit bowl with granola and yogurt that was soooo good. Would go back there again in a skinny minute. The waitstaff were nice and vey helpful. A good local restaurant.

We've been regulars here for many decades, and love the breakfasts and lunches. But.... Lately suppers have slipped, we'd swear almost all new crew, food not cooked the same as it used to be, dirty out-of-soap mens' room two different nights (observed a waiter exiting same then promptly serving food - ICK!), and heaven help you if your server has...

The eggs and blueberry pancakes were delicious. The raisin bran French toast was also very good. It was a gorgeous day so we sat outside on the patio. We recommend Becky's and will definitely return on our next visit. The service was good and pretty quick.

I have never had a bad meal at Becky's and guest are always glad I introduced them to Becky's Diner. Fish is always good and I would never order it at any diner... always great at this diner. It can be a very busy diner during the summer... so I usually go there on off-hours.

The good- LOCATION. Its far enough away you don't have to fight the cruise-ship-nazis for dinner. The food was a good as good as anywhere down east. Cost was less. The Bad...really nothing. Maine shrimp are wimpy compared to gulf shrimp. But that's not their fault ;) I had the lobster which was great! but the twice baked potatoes were... More

We were told there would be a lineup to get in for breakfast and there was! But it did move quickly. This is a hoping joint! The food, prices and staff were wonderful. Don't let the lineup outside keep you away.

I wanted to experience a different Becky's than the tourists, and arrived at 4:30 AM on a weekday when there was no one else there except about 4 (presumably) fishermen, all dining solo, one with a crossword puzzle. The diner is unpretentious and at that hour, shows no sign of the tourist explostion to come. It was, at that time,... More

This is a favorite of locals and tourists alike. We had breakfast there twice and found the food and service to be very good. The place is old and not fancy but has a very down home feeling.
