This place was packed, but it was Mothers Day. The lobster eggs Benedict was amazing! My wife had the lobster roll which was equally as good. You can tell this is a locals hot spot and was definitely worth the $50

This place is popular with locals and tourists alike. I had home fries with cheese (large portion and very good) and a small fruit bowl. The fruit bowl had a wide variety of fruits and was fairly large. Good breakfast spot.

Becky's gets packed and rightly so. It's the diner Portland sorely needed for honest-to-goodness breakfasts (lunch & dinner too). Their omelettes are fantastic as they have no filler. It's just eggs with whatever you want inside the omelette. Their bacon is the best and they...More

Best place for breakfast. All food is good. Old fashion cafe and favorite hangout for fishermen. Plenty of food on the plate. Always a crowd. Popular place in Portland

It is available but during their busy times, it may be difficult to find.
Hi, is there gluten-free bread/pancakes available? The restaurant is marked "gluten-free" but I couldn't find anything on the menu.

Becky's Diner is located on the Portland waterfront. We are casual and friendly and we welcome families. We offer breakfast, lunch and dinner seven days a week. Fresh, local seafood is served here and even at breakfast we offer lobster omelettes. Becky's has been run by the same family for 25 years.
