My son and I were headed to New England for some hiking and seafood. I was told by an acquaintance not to miss Becky's Diner and to try the crab melt. We camped out one night at Sebago Lake SP before heading to Portland and a native of Portland told me to go to Becky's and try the crab melt.... More

We had a late dinner here for my 40th birthday, after driving from Niagara that day. The food arrived promptly, but it was overpriced for the quality received. I had a lobster roll and it was not as fresh as I expected. The location was good and the interior of the restaurant was inviting. We truly wanted a local experience,... More

Very popular pretty long wait but turnover very efficient and enough staff to accommodate patrons. We had brunch and ate fish and chips and a side of blueberry pancake. The meal was very good and the price was reasonable.

Do not go anywhere else. Becky's is by far the best. The lobster Omelet is the best I have ever had. Real big pieces of fresh lobster. The blueberry pancakes are to die for. Yiu may have a wait because it is always packed.

This was the second year we have eaten a casual dinner up on the outside balcony at Becky's. All 3 of us enjoyed our Neal's. The fried shrimp, while small was delicious and the quantity of fish was very large. A pleasant, casual dinner.

Ate here twice for breakfast and once for dinner on a quick business trip to Portland, Maine last week. I love to eat "tourist food" (if a town or region is known for something, it must be for a reason) but also love to dine in places frequented by locals rather than tourists (to give you more of a feel...

We ate a lateish dinner here and was pleasantly surprised. I had a scallop special and my husband had the full lobster dinner. Both were delicious and of course super fresh. Stella Artois was on tap, and that made our day!

Went to Becky's Diner for lunch. Sat at the counter. The service was quick and friendly. I had a grilled sandwich, coleslaw and sweet potato fries. Food was very good! It was a fun and laid back diner.

My husband and I needed a quick breakfast and this served that purpose. Good scrambled eggs, potatoes and coffee. Although everything was an upcharge (onions, peppers, etc). We got in and out ( sat upstairs in the porch) and our waitress was a gem!

I was born and brought up un a fishing port (Gloucester, MA.) and my family has been in the fishing business for over 300 years so Becky's was like going home again...Not fancy..A working man's place. Lots of fishermen in the very early morning...Everything is good but my favorite is the corned beef hash and fresh blueberry pancakes. Best cup... More
