We stopped here for breakfast on the way to the road to Hana. We weren't really sure how it was going to turn out but there weren't many choices in the area. It was phenomenal!!! The banana bread French toast was out of this world. We ended up going back again the next day. The pancakes were great too. I... More

One of the valet parkers recommended Charley's when we travel to Paia! We actually ended up going twice. On the first visit, we had breakfast. The Huevos Rancheros were terrific. They also had a bloody mary bar (do it yourself) that contained every possible ingredient. Did not take advantage of this, but it sure looked good!!!

You'll just have to save the bloody mary bar for next time, right? ;) Seriously, thanks very much for the fantastic review -- it means a lot to know how much you enjoyed your visit here, and I hope we'll see you again sometime! Mahalo, Jonathan, Owner More

Prior to beginning our day long adventure we stopped at Charlie's for breakfast which was certainly a great way to begin our Hana adventure. Servings are large with great service. While waiting for our order we walked the bar area taking pictures of the place where Willie, Woody, Steven and others grace the stage from time to time on Momday's... More

Haven't had the breakfast yet but I will in the spring. I would not go to Maui and not go to charlies for Mai Tai's and Ahi Poke. Such a refreshing experience every time. Whether you take the road to Hana or just visit the turtles and swim on a beach. Stopping at Charley's is the thing to do.

The pancakes are fluffy, giant and delicious. The banana bread french toast is to die for! The service is also wonderful. A great place to fuel up before hitting the road to (past ;-) hana. Great Willie Nelson memorabilia too.

Who would have thought that biscuits and gravy which is a southern thing would be this good on Maui. Awesome cup of joe as well. Only tried breakfast so can't comment on the rest. A good stop before the road to Hana.

Hawaii is technically the southernmost state in the USA, so we're bound to have the BEST biscuits and gravy, right? ;) In all seriousness, I'm glad you enjoyed everything you tried. Hope to see you again soon! Mahalo, Jonathan, Owner More

Went there for breakfast and what was suppose to be my favorite (loco moco). When it was served and started to take a bite, the ground beef was raw. I will never eat there again!

John, I am extremely concerned to see this, and I apologize for not responding sooner. This is unacceptable and I'm not sure how it could have happened. When you get a chance, please email me at Jonathan@CharleysMaui.com with the date and time of your visit so that I can investigate this. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, Jonathan,... More

We loved The breakfast at charleys, you have to try! Wonderful banana bread, big eggs benedict and very good Café Latte! The portions are very big and we enjoyed the good breakfast, The Great Music and The Cowboy Ambiente. We also liked The free wifi

I've been to Charley's a few times now and I've always enjoyed the atmosphere and the food is pretty good. Sometimes the service is a little slow... But that's ok.. They are on Maui time. I would recommend checking them out.

I'm really happy you've enjoyed your visits! We do try to be a relaxing place, but I'm sorry if that's ever caused your service to be unnecessarily slow -- that's not our goal. Still, it sounds like you're a fan, and I hope you'll be back soon! Mahalo, Jonathan, Owner More

Brought my elderly father and sister here for breakfast. They have awesome food. The pancakes are perfect. The restaurant extends back into a huge bar which becomes another world at night. Definitely worth the drive to Paia.
