What a waste of my time, money and a meal I could have enjoyed elsewhere. I had the Cajun Ono Egg Benedict and DH had some meal combo thing. Both were just Bleh. Not worth the money. Wish I had eaten in Kihei............we were even starvin gand thought it sucked! Side dish was brown rice, wasn't even cooked correctly. Crunchy... More

The night we were there, the restaurant was almost empty and we would have enjoyed this place more if we had been when the live music was on. Food was okay, nothing special but no complaints either. The wine selection is limited and served too warm, which is true of many restaurants in Maui.

My extended family is from Maui, so i'm familiar Charlie's. However, my new wife and I took it to another level on our honeymoon. We drove to Paia from Wailea for Charlie's almost every morning on our honeymoon. The Cajun Ono Eggs Benedict are insane. They are matched by the Macadamia Nut pancakes - you only get one, but you...

Macadamia nut pancakes with coconut syrup are AWSOME! 2 cakes enough for 2 because they are bigger than the plates.

We starting our drive to Hana and stopped and asked a local where we could get breakfast. They sent us to Charley's which is right on the main highway in town. It was very good. We had macadamia nut pancakes and waffles with coconut syrup. Fantastic! The servings were large and the service was fine. Charley's is a good place... More

I thought Charley's was very very good! We read some reviews online and decided to start our Trip to Hana here because they said the meals were FILLING. They were! I didn't listen to the waitress when she said ONE Macadamia Nut pancake was enough! So I ordered two..big mistake! I ended up taking them to go with some of... More

We stopped here after our Bike It Maui tour for breakfast. I got the burrito and my wife got the pancakes. The burrito did not disappoint. My wife could only finish half of her pancakes due to there huge size. Don't forget the glass of POG juice. Good service, good food, and fun atmosphere. The food was included in our... More

I visited Charley's on recomendations from close friends. They said the Macadamia Nut Pancakes were worth the trip to Maui alone, and they were right! When I asked the waitress if I should order one or two, she said one would be plenty. I was skeptical, but she was absolutely right! Halfway through the delightful breakfast (make sure to use...
