Charlie’s kitchen is a cozy and a bit divey with great food at a low price. One of my favorite places!
$0.50 oysters! The food was pretty quick and cheap.
The owners are very kind! Delicious chocolates
It's a very loud place with a big menu. The portions are amazing for what you pay for. I've past by this place multiple times and this was my into to it. Thank you Nift for opening the door for me to try other items on the menu.
Charlie's had excellent specials, attention to service and a quick meal at a good price
Affordable and convenient. I'll be back!
Great burgers, unbeatable value
Cool environment and pretty tasty food.
Beyond Burgers and good beer.
Really tasty food!
Our server was brand new, I believe they said it was their 2nd shift. They were excellent and it was quite busy. The server made us feel welcomed and we did not feel rushed.
very good food, great customer service...popular busy restaurant...
Double cheeseburger came with lots of bacon and mushrooms. Beef not as juicy as other restaurants though. Not that many onions either. Good, big frappe.
As a mainstay and staple of Harvard Square, Charlie's Kitchen is a good place to go for an inexpensive meal. The place is easygoing, cozy, there are friendly servers and good food. There is a great wine and spirits menu, as well as a good selection of beers, even one that is gluten free. Our server was personable and attentive without hovering. My husband had been there before a number of years ago, but it was the first time for me. I enjoyed myself and would go to Charlie's Kitchen again.
It was good but not very memorable
Charlies is the best bar in the Boston area.
Average food, great mozzarella sticks. Seems like a good place if you’re out to drink, not great for casual date night.
I got the meat squared and the short rib was delicious!
Good food and very good vegetarian options for my friend.
Good apps and beers
The food was very good and affordable. In case this is an issue, it's a loud young environment.
Different place, but good food
Delicious food, football, and beer!
Gorgeous outdoor space, great food and beer
Great if you’re in the mood for casual no-frill pub grub 💯. Great value too — double cheeseburger for only 7$. Friendly & relaxed service too.
Awesome outdoor space. Great for summer nights. Never would have known about it if I hadn’t gone in
Food prices are great for college students like myself. Makes it affordable to eat out!
Found myself at Charlie’s Kitchen eating their Beyond Burger topped with hummus + kale chips. Nice brioche bun and ok fries.
The burger was good. Fries were very tasty and crunchy. The Quesadilla was soso.
good service great atmosphere great people
One of my favorite places for a burger. Love going in the summer time to the patio.
Delicious! Very friendly staff!
nice selection. of veggieburgers
Good food for a bargain, fast service
The food was ok, the chicken tenders were yummy!

Great prices for high quality food
Super fast service! The beer garden looked cute but I ended up sitting on Eliot street. $1 oysters were pretty good and the burgers didn’t disappoint. Waffle fries were a Great choice too. Good ambiance and I’d love to go again and see the beer garden!

I did not have great expectations for the lobster club sandwich but it was great. I was there at a slow hour and the staff was not particularly attentive but they were super kind. The menus weren't clean but this is a rustic dinner/bar.
Fast service. Very friendly
Food was yummy! The steak tips were excellent, the guac cheeseburger was very average. Service was okay.
Great portions, good burger.
Lovely atmosphere, great service, yummy food!
The place to chill in Harvard Square for sure.
Great outdoor beer garden! Standard pub fare and beer options, but outdoor space is always a nice find in Harvard Square!
Good food, quick service.
It was great. I'm a regular at Charlies anyways, so it was great to get a free lunch.
Everyone was very friendly, including welcoming our baby and the chaos that goes with that. The atmosphere was great, the food was pretty good.
Not fancy just a place to enjoy a beer and bar food and cheer your favorite sports team.
Fun casual spot with good food and beer.
Great service and even better burgers at affordable prices! If you haven’t been, you need to go.
Expansive menu and drinks, solid food, good area.
Delicious and great vegetarian options. Very well priced. Will return!
The chocolate cake was good, the jalapeño poppers were good but the chicken fingers weren't great and the staff weren't very attentive
Really great beer garden, excellent burgers and waffle fries, wide selection on tap, and killer music all-night from the early 2000s
Have not been there much.. Food is so-so but loved the funky atmosphere and the staff.. Rekindled my curiosity of the place.
Drive bar with comfortable feel and great outdoor seating
Had a such good time at Charlie’s Kitchen... was perfect for lobster roll season!!
I loved everything about it— the food was terrific, the service perfect and the atmosphere was fun. Great burgers.
Great food and service! Thank you
So many good veggie options. :). I’ll be back soon!
