Joe's Diner was an affordable meal in a cute diner! The fish and chips was absolutely delicious and very filling! Our waitress was very helpful and cheerful. I would definitely return next time in Stratford!

I’ve been a half dozen times- usually it’s good. Today at lunchtime the waitress had a “whatever” attitude that another reviewer noted recently. No water after 2 requests. I went up to the counter myself to retrieve it myself. Same thing for a coffee refill-...More

Very nice Diner. Nothing fancy but reminiscent of well-run old time Diners. Great menu. Breakfast Club sandwich was excellent. Great friendly unhurried service.

Just like a mom and pop place-- good reasonable food!! Their smoothies are terrific to take on the go while browsing through town! Friendly atmosphere.

We had a few breakfasts in Stratford but this was the best by far. The waitress was so friendly, the food good quality and very reasonably priced. It is not fancy at all, no smashed avocados here (thank goodness), but simple food cooked well. Excellent.

We eat at Joe's Diner about 3 times a month for the food and service. The owner Blaine and his son and daughter have created a homey vibe with a menu and selection reminiscent of my childhood. From delicious breakfast to tasty beef, hot dogs,...More

Joe's is a great diner... we had breakfast there, of course. Service was great, with coffee cups kept full and excellent omelettes. Table next to us was a dozen local seniors solving the world's problems over breakfast, which is a pretty good hint that it's...More
