We love stopping in at Becky's for breakfast while visiting family in Portland. They always serve great food, have wonderful service and the prices are great. There is always a crowd out the door....but they move people in quickly. If you are in Portland check Becky's out....especially for breakfast.

It was the only place open Sunday morning, so the wait was about 20-25 min, but the food and service were very good, definitely worth the wait. Had 'Titanic' omelet, and the chowder. Decent coffee.

Everything, including the homemade corn beef hash was perfectly prepared and delicious. Very crowded on a freezing Saturday morning. We'll worth the 20 min or so wait. Waitstaff are wonderful!

We went there to expect the best little diner of all time. Do not go there if this is your want. We all ordered different food and it was all just average.

Go there for the friendly atmosphere and sense of the past. Spaghetti and meatballs were bland and had to be doctored up as leftovers, omelet was very greasy and seafood stuffed haddock mostly tasted of the cracker (?) filling.

Fantastic choice for breakfast! Good, hearty diner food, done right. Great service. Yes, it can be touristy, but it's the locals they cater to.

The service people were wonderful; but, the food was TERRIBLE. Scallops & fr fries over cooked for the last three times I visited. Even the scallops were dark in color. Not fresh looking at all. I use to like Becky's Diner in Portland, Maine. What happened! The service people must get slighted on their tips because of the food quality.... More
