Becky's is the first choice for breakfast! Conveniently located on the Commercial Street, it's a landmark for regulars and tourists alike. The atmosphere is pleasant, the service is excellent, and the food is prepared to your liking. I love breakfast there because of the selection, prices, convenience, service and the locals. Becky's is a must for anyone in the Portland... More

I had lunch with my daughter after walking along the main road on the bay. There was a short wait to get a seat. We were given two counter seats and the waitress go to us in a timely manner. We ordered the crab melt sandwich which was typical for the area. It was an excellent sandwich and would recommend... More

The place is busy, parking very hard. Employees seem very friendly. Food is good, nothing to write home about. If you are in the area go and eat here, but I wouldn't go looking for the place.

We love breakfast at Becky's! Portions are generous with delicious pancakes and muffins - try them grilled! There's oftentimes a wait to get in but it is worth it. The atmosphere there is old style luncheonette. Wait staff is very friendly. On this last visit, however, the young ladies working the counter/reception allowed the waiting crowds to get to them...

There was a line out the door, but it was definitely worth the wait. The waitresses do a fantastic job working so many tables. The homemade corn beef hash was really good, so why would anyone go for the canned version?

Hard to decide - we visited at noon but couldn't decide between the breakfast or lunch menu!!! We did lunch but will have to return.... Great service, large portions (although it left no room for dessert!!!) and easygoing atmosphere. Worth the 20 minute wait!

Breakfast was very good. I liked that you could order just one pancake. Nothing too fancy but good and a good value. I would recommend it.

Thank betteluna
