Good food

We stopped in for lunch. Very reasonable prices and family friendly menu. Excellent service. Fried haddock sandwich was wonderful.

I was rolling through Portland en route to Boston after a weekend home and stopped with my friend at Becky's Diner, having heard great things from friends and family and having never had it before. I was greeted by a friendly hostess who showed me to my table immediately where I was then welcomed by a friendly waitress named Analise... More

By far the best haddock sandwich I had in Old Port.I paid $14 for a haddock sandwich at Portland Lobster Co and the quality and size did not compare to Becky's $9 haddock sandwich.

My wife and I had noticed Becky's a few times on our walks down Commercial Street, so we finally decided to stop in and try it. We were not disappointed. Becky's has a classic diner feel to it, with 50's style bar-stools and booths. I had an omelette and my wife had pancakes, and both liked them. The food was... More

deciding to "have breakfast for dinner" we went to Becky. Were told to take a seat anywhere. Waitress took order and we waited and waited and waited for our order. We weren't asked if we wanted refills on coffee or tea. Not asked if we wanted water. Place almost empty, kitchen staff hooting and hollering in background. Others at counter... More

Took about 20 minutes for us to be seated, very busy! The food and service was good, excellent sasauges, but not worth the long wait.

We went to Becky's Diner on the recommendation of a local guide at the Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse. He said it was really good for breakfast. We went for dinner and considered ordering breakfast food but got fried seafood instead. The food was fine, but nothing special. We were early and it wasn't crowded but started filling up later. We... More

Busy diner, we got seated quickly at the bar. The food was good. Our waitress disappeared off the radar though. Once we ordered and the food was brought out she didn't check on us at all. We didn't get refills on our coffee or drinks and another waitress got our check for us. I don't know if our waitress was... More

We arrived around 2:00 pm and the place was full except for seats at the counter. Some were eating breakfast, some lunch - and every plate I saw looked great. Our wait person was incredibly friendly and most competent at her job. They were running a "double the meat" lobster roll that day and it was delicious. They brought a... More

Expect a wait, this place is busy. Lobster roll was excellent but a bit pricey (not too much given the quality of the lobster). Service was quick and friendly. I would recommend to my family and friends.
