Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 288reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Charlie's Kitchen is a hip restaurant in Harvard Square which has been there for years. The atmosphere is cool and the food is great. Good people watching too. Oct 12, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Sometimes I've bigger lumps of lobster in the lobsterburger, which I've liked, but this time the consistency was more uniform, more like ground beef. That disappointed some, since I'd enthused to my wife about it.Also I very much like the patio, but wish the fence were lower. It feels too enclosed, a tiny corral. Sep 16, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Since it was a hot day, all tables were full in the bar. We sat in the high chair area. The lobster burger with waffle fries tasted ok, not memorable. Soon after our 2:30pm lunch, we had stomach issue. Meat was probably not kept in proper condition. Painted tin ceiling must've been beautiful once. Wait staff was attentive. Harvard is nearby. Basically it's a dive bar for 20 something's. Jul 11, 2015
