Staff is always friendly whenever I go. The food comes out fresh and is always delicious. The atmosphere of the establishment is always lively and friendly. Can't say enough good things about this place.

It should go without saying -- Mr. Bartley's has amazing burgers. Don't be overwhelmed with the very crowded -- picnic table style dining. The food is fantastic and the burgers are always fresh. I love that they have so many different burger combinations -- I always try something new and different when I go. Definitely try one of their delicious milkshakes on the side!

Haven't been here in forever, but from what I recall they had amazing burgers, fries, and shakes. The burgers always had cool names after presidents and other notable figures. The walls are covered in memorabilia and funny signs. It's a place you have to go and enjoy your time at a communal table. It gets busy from what I remember and still see but it's worth the wait. I hope to go back again soon!

If only I could review just THE BURGERS, this place WOULD BE FIVE STARS!!! Unfortunately, the rest of this place is a huge pain in the ass. First of all, the avg. employee there is about 20 years old so....Secondly, bankers hours. If you have a job or a life or anything, good luck even getting in this place while it's open. Third, and this is the worst, it's the kind of cramped where you/you're party shares a table with other parties. Now imagine those other parties being really young (or young and with their parents who are visiting them at Harvard) and you've got a perfect recipe for not being able to hear what your friends are saying unless you yell. If you can get there on a weekday before 2pm you might have a perfectly fine experience. Good luck with that. The burgers and the shakes are great!

Medium was pink and bloody, tasteless onion rings, overpriced for the cramped seating and unpleasant food.

Burguers are VERY good. That being said, the place is tiny, there's no restroom for the customers (I hope that they legally provide one for employees) and the managing people are rough. I would say it's worth trying, but I don't think I'll like to be back anytime soon.

Burgers are delicious... Ambience is Harvard Community... Onion Rings? Can you ever get enough? This is always my "coming home to Boston" first stop!!!

I really liked the burgers, including the veggie burger! The shakes are incredible and very filling. The only thing I didn't love was the fact that there was not ranch dressing for the onion rings, however this is just a personal preference. Otherwise, it was perfect!
