Paia maintains its small-town, old Hawaii charm, and is now a bustling destination with restaurants, bars, shopping, coffee and gelato. At Charley’s you never know who might be sitting next to you. It’s long been a favorite hang-out for surfers, adventurers, writers, hippies, rock stars, artists, business leaders, celebrities, and all types, looking to get away and find the ultimate in Maui hospitality.

A neat little restaurant find in Paia

My husband and I spent an afternoon in Paia after making the drive back from Hana. We were hungry and this place had a menu that was extensive. Our server was great (though I don't know her name) and the Mai Tai's were wonderful! I ordered the Chicken Basil Panini and my husband had the Bourbon... read more

I've been to Charley's now for a view times and I always enjoyed my time. You always get treated very good. Fast service as well as good music. Mostly american classics. Beside that there are always the latest sport news. When you're in happy hour time you truly can save a lot of money and get a lot of great... More

Stopped into Paia for a few minutes prior to flying off island for business. We got some great sandwiches, good cold beers, and a fun staff. The food was surprisingly good given that this looks like a rock-n-roll bar. Parking in back really helped (Paia is made for walking). If you want a good place to stop, grab a bite,... More

Good burgers and fish-and-chips. Charley's is in Paia. It is a place with a large bar and a venue for live music. It also has free parking, which is a big deal in Paia. The fish and chips were really good. Burgers made with Maui beef are good everywhere on the island.

Good atmosphere, efficient and friendly wait staff. Breakfast pancakes completely fill up your plate and the coconut syrup is very tasty. Ate there 3 times and enjoyed it. Decent music at night also.

At first glance, it may not look like much, but we had a very good meal here and the atmosphere is fun. Our server was nice if not a little ditzy, but it added to the charm. My husband had the BBQ chicken and I had the Chicken Pesto Pizza. Be sure to stop by Charley's!

seemed like a local hangout, even though it is on the main strip in Paia. The food was very good.... The Mai-Tai's strong. The atmosphere was cool...seemed authentic.

We stopped in Paia for a little shopping and lunch before our Road to Hana drive. Lunch at Charley's was very good and on our way back from the drive we decided to eat dinner at Charley's also!

Good pancakes, enough for two, poor dry French toast...waitresses overworked....have to remind them of more coffee etc. it has been remodeled and do not know if same owners, but there are very few breakfast places on the island to choose from

I had to try their pancakes that they are famous for. They are huge and very delish. The place was great and wait staff was friendly. The best potatoes.
