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.

Pretty Good Value

We went for lunch on a Sunday. This is a pretty large restaurant. Basic and eclectic furnishings. Service was a bit slow or it may be a casual kind of pace. So we ordered the small Greek salad and I didn't Finnish it. Nice fresh variety of greens and a good dressing. Would order it again. We... read more

Charley's is a great way to kick off the drive to Hana. We stopped in for breakfast and were not disappointed. Everyone in our party of four enjoyed their food. The omelet that was ordered was large and served nice and hot, the French toast was made of a thick, tasty bread, and my daughter and I each ordered the... More

New owner has tried to make this a younger hangout, and lessen the Willie Nelson influence. It still is very cool, and a great place to watch NFL on Sunday

I'm glad you're still a fan, and I hope we see you again soon. Just want to say, though, that we still love Willie, and we don't want to downplay his importance to Charley's. We have added lots of images of his sons, Lukas and Micah and many of the other amazing musicians who also join us at Charley's. Everybody... More

I was in the mood for a great burger and Charlies provided just that. I do have to say they have some of the best onion rings I have ever tasted. Being from Wisconsin, we like to deep fry everything. I have never had such great onion rings anywhere. When in town you must try out Charlies.

I can't tell all my friends enough about the great food and service at Charley's, sure I'm biased, I live on Maui half the year, but once you eat there, EATING is believing !!

Food was excellent and service very friendly. I would have expected lots of tourists, but it was mostly local. Great music and atmosphere. Not crowded either.

Stopped at Charley's for breakfast after the sunrise and a downhill ride on bikes. Food was well prepared and the service was good. It also looks like a good place to hang out at night. They have a bar.

We stopped in Paia town to grab a bite on our way out of Hana. The food was good and they had a live musician which was nice. The bar served good drinks and the staff was helpful. The restaurant has had several famous musicians play there over the years.

Have not eaten at Charley's for ages. It has been remodeled and had a change of ownership since our last visit. Food was very good, service was average to above average and overall we were pleasantly surprised. A great spot for breakfast, all the old favorites with some new healthy options. Coffee very good (FYI fresh cream available on request)... More
