Step into the 50s!

I love diners and am so happy Lee has Joe's Diner. It hasn't changed in looks very much, so it is like a 50s time capsule. They have efficient service, great pancakes and delicious specials every day. Sit at the counter and chat with the other diners, or at a table and read the local papers... read more

After seeing the diner in the Norman Rockwell Museum, we decided to check it out. The staff was friendly but the food was average. It was fun sitting there and listening to the locals talk.

Had a basic hamburger and fries! Very good. My husband had fish and chips. I will say the write up was a little overstated! All in good food but not what we expected.

My parents had been going to Joe's Diner for years so when I had the chance to stop in I did. I had blueberry pancakes that were huge and delicious. Service at the counter was just what you'd expect. I will stop in there again this summer when I go to a concert at Tanglewood.

Love the old time feel - authentic. Excellent prices, delicious pancakes, eggs, French toast. Not sure how we haven't come here sooner as we have been coming up to Lee for 10 years! Even though it's a diner and really inexpensive I am giving it 5 stars because of how cool it is and how friendly the staff is and... More

My family and I come here every time we go to the berkshires. Old town diner (with the stools and counter), very comfy and cozy. Excellent breakfast)I always get the corned beef hash and eggs and am never disappointed). Giant portions and cheap prices. No complaints here. Just be aware, it is cash only, but they have an ATM machine... More

It is great to read the articles on the wall about Joe, this place has been open since the fifties. The breakfast was half the price as the same meal we had down the road and better!

The place was made famous by the Rockwell illustration showing a boy running away from home and the policeman and Joe trying to talk him out of it. This place looks like a hole in the wall, but they serve the best basic foot around. Service is lightening fast. Sit at the counter and within minutes you'll be chatting with... More
