Great food and service! The waitress was very sweet and friendly. The food was very good. Loved the history connected to Norman Rockwell.

Joe's Diner is all it is talked up to be. This is where the locals eat. The Home Fries which are usually tasteless in other restaurants, were lightly seasoned. The veggie omelette was as good as I read it would be, and not scorched as in many other restaurants. Eggs the way you like them. Service is friendly. Price is... More

Joe's has become our go-to place in Lee. The waitress we usually have is very friendly and accommodating. I usually have the scrod with seasoned fries & their coleslaw is great. My husband usually has the prime rib on Fridays and he always enjoys it (although he suggests they trim a bit more of the fat off). We've never had... More

My sister and I loved everything about this place -- the table of older gent locals gossiping and hooting, the sweet waitress chatting up everyone, the weathered photos on the wall. We shared an excellent mushroom burger and each had a shake (the old-fashioned kind of course that comes with the metal cup). If you are a fan of old-time... More

My wife and I had a late breakfast there recently on a visit to the Berkshires. Joe's is a classic old town diner..no frills...good service and good breakfast. It was really inexpensive for these days and especially for the Berkshires!

Our daughter recommended this place...nothing much to look at. As our daughter put it "it's a truck drivers stop" great food no frills. She was so right. The omelets were absolutely delicious and they got my order exactly the way I like it. Vegetable omelet with NO green peppers and not potatoes or bread on the plate! "Perfecto!" And the... More

Quaint diner which served as an inspiration for Norman Rockwell who also ate there. Good food, great prices awesome service. I understand you have not had the full experience until you've met Margaret (a very funny waitress)...looking forward to that ! Warm welcome by the staff, we will make this a regular stop. Love it!

Oh my gosh....what a pleasant experience for lunch. The owner, owners son and sister were all there. When asked by a waitress if we enjoyed the soup (oh it was excellent) we were told that she had made it and makes all the soups. Also had a great cheeseburger...yea one of those were you use more than one napkin. Oh... More
