My wife and I have been coming to Lee and the Berkshires for over thirty years. When I was a kid my parents and I stayed in East Lee with my Aunt Clara. They loved Norman Rockwell's art and they loved going to Joe's. This...year my wife and I ate at Joe's for our first time. We were not disappointed. Everything about the place was real. A step back in time. Service was fast and friendly. Food was fresh and good. I had a Juicy Lucy which I never had before. It was great and very juicy. I would not change a thing, Joe's is perfect as is. It is a local place not a tourist destination. Bravo!!!More

Great friendly diner. Obviously a locals spot. The service was very good and the server was friendly. My wife and I had breakfast there. She had the corned beef was excellent and I had the standard two eggs over easy with hash browns and bacon....We were very pleased with our visit.More

We went here for breakfast recently and expected a true diner experience. What’s that? Excellent coffee, delivered quickly. Fun service - sassy is ok, cold is not ok. We waited close to 10 minutes for coffee! At a diner! It was the worst diner coffee...we’d ever had - dishwater immediately came to mind. Eggs, toast, English muffins, and hash browns were all good. Bacon was fine. I wouldn’t return, and wouldn’t recommend.More

We stopped here for breakfast, and it was so good we came back for dinner. This is a great classic diner experience with extraordinarily friendly service. Best service we had in the Berkshires. Food was all very good diner food. Great home fries, fried chicken,...(fried) seafood sampler.More

What an wonderful unexpected surprise! The food and service were great. We loved it and would highly recommend it. It's not fancy but it's got everything a good local diner place should have. It gets busy so be sure to get there early to get...a spot. Have fun and spend time with the locals. We loved it.More

Very disappointed in food. How can one ruin bacon & eggs, but the did. Servers loud and a bit crude.

I had perfectly cooked eggs and bacon. My husband had a sandwich. Everything was exceptional and very inexpensive. I’m hoping to go for dinner before heading home.

Joe's Diner is rarely empty because it has devoted customers who come here for excellent food at decent prices. This iconic diner is nostalgic, an old fashioned diner setting that feels like a Hollywood movie set. There are lots of choices on the menu from...breakfast specialties to sandwiches and seafood dishes to homemade fruit pies. My friend loved Joe's Diner so much that while visiting Lee, MA, he ate here three times. I really liked my tuna salad sandwich at lunch. Sat outdoors and enjoyed a filling meal. Joe's Diner is a must when visiting LEE. Locals love this place.More

Had breakfast at Joe’s, our waitress was very pleasant! small limited dining area local color and the food was very good! Joe’s is an excellent value! gave it four stars instead of five because our breakfast was interrupted by a man who came in and...had to shoot his mouth off in a very inappropriate manner. Not any fault of Joe’s or their staffMore

Good portions at a reasonable price. Omelet was good...pancakes were pretty heavy and doughy...good coffee... Also, got a takeout breakfast sandwich the morning prior...good to fill up before a round of golf!

Don't know about pets, but I doubt it. No outside seating.
