The burgers are very good and the staff is super friendly. The place has a lot of history and right across from Harvard. It is a student eatery so don't expect haute cuisine. The milkshakes were excellent and worth trying. Overall a good experience

Great for kids and family. Burgers are amazing. It’s family style seating so be prepared to get cozy with someone new.

We ate here regularly with Mr. Bartley was still working the grill. His family still runs the place and it is still good. I like the onion rings in particular.

Mr Bartley’s is a Harvard Square area icon that is worth a visit. Try your favorite burger, fixed nd cooked the way you like it. The onion rings are quite good, as are the milk shakes (called frappes in New England). My only beef, no pun intended, is the cost. It was nearly $50 for two burgers, fries/rings and a couple of frappes. With tip, it was $60, which seems a bit steep for the fare.

The atmosphere is terrific, and our server, Wendy was also wonderful. Mr. Bartley’s is worth a stop and is a Cambridge tradition. I couldln’t bring myself to call it average and give it three stars, but it isn’t quite four stars because of the cost. Somewhere in between feels about right. Bring cash as they don’t accept credit cards.
