If you're a breakfast lover, this is the place! Long wait but it was worth it. Ample portions and friendly service. Great location but very limited parking. Plan on walking a block or more.

After a disastrous 4am hotel check-in following a nearly 9-hour drive, we decided to go for breakfast. Seeing Becky's was the only place open at that hour and hearing about it beforehand online, we decided to go here. I couldn't have been happier with that decision. What we found far exceeded any expectations. Becky's at 4-5am reminded me of Cheers:... More

We came with big expectations, the place is crowded, and we had to wait to be seated. We went to have lunch, but the menu doesn't offer much, so we asked the fisherman platter, which consist in a small portion of fried seafood, the shrimp was so small I had to guess what it was, and a bowl of crab...

Stopped by because it was featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. The prices are incredibly reasonable. We had the lobster roll which was excellent and the crab sandwich with swiss cheese was equally good. Portion sizes are very generous. This is a popular place on the waterfront. As you would expect, it was busy during the Wednesday lunch hour. Service... More

This is a popular place on the waterfront. It opens at 4 AM so I assume it's the first stop for lobstermen. When we went in, the place was packed and bustling. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was good, but not great. The menu is pretty standard. So nothing to write home about here - overall a good... More

This is your basic good diner. Nothing fancy just perfectly prepared food. Our breakfast was cooked to perfection. The French toast was wonderful.

We had breakfast and it was excellent. Coming from the Midwest, we were confused when the waitress asked if we wanted our blueberry muffin grilled. She insisted that it was good that way and yes it was! Blueberry pancakes are a must too!

Four of us were in Portland for five days and just had to eat at Becky's twice. We would have gone back again but ran out of time. Huge, delicious breakfasts (try the fresh blueberry pancakes) and the chowder and lobster rolls are as good as I have ever eaten anywhere. There is usually a wait, but it is short... More

You could be misled by the reviews and expect more than 'reasonable value for money', diner food. We wanted an authentic (non-tourist) local experience and that's what we got. Average lobster. Reasonable fish of the day. Mediocre wine (on the "you get what you pay for" basis?) Awful bread pudding that wasn't baked through - not in the same league... More

We travel to Portland 4-5 times a year as our little getaway. It has absolutely great restaurants. But one of most favorite getaways is Becky's Diner on 390 Commercial St. We go for breakfast, for lunch, for dinner, and for late night deserts. We recently went for the late night deserts. I had the whoopee pies cake - OMG!!!! My... More
