    I'm not a big breakfast person, so my go-to is usually a sandwich of some sort. It was so good here! Fluffy English muffin buttery goodness!

    The legendary goodness of Becky’s split griddle-cooked muffins and her four-egg Titanic Omelette earned her a booming tourist trade over the years. For dinner, get the meatloaf. Read more

    Have a huge breakfast at any time of day! Try the big blueberry pancakes. Unfortunately it's an extra $1.50 to get REAL maple syrup. Serving lunch and dinner too, but breakfast is the best thing here!

    Stopped in during a snow storm. A true locals' diner, I had the huevos rancheros special. Food was great, coffee was good. Would absolutely return. They have Bissell & Bud on tap which I found funny.

    Cab driver from last night recommended this place - best diner in town, he says. He doesn't lie. You'll find proof in the Homemade corned beef hash!!

    Clam chowder seafood chowder with homemade biscuits and honey. Just like Mom used to make. 23$ for 3 people. We come here every time we come to Portland

    HUGE portions of blueberry pancakes--super tasty. Great value for money, and even with a queue at 10am on a Sunday, the line moved fast.

    Good place. I had better breakfast, but great service. Still nothing mind blowing. But a 30 minute wait def not worth it. I think it's a victim of its own success. With it being on food network.

    Blueberry pancakes were insane. Crunchy edges and loaded with Maine blueberries. Add on a grilled blueberry muffin for carb berry overload

    In addition to excellent pancakes and French toast, the corned beef hash was awesome. Come early, gets crowded quick.

    Family owned, locally trusted. Take on the Hobson's Wharf Breakfast Special if you're feeling ambitious and pick up a "bumpah stickah" for your vessel. http://bit.ly/1f6T2B9

    Great service & low prices, however the menu/food is pretty darn basic and the wait time is ridiculous, especially for parties larger than 2. The 45 minute wait wasn't worth it.
