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.

“Great breakfast on the way to Hana”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Was here for a group event with friends and enjoyed a decent breakfast (had the French Toast, the coconut syrup was a nice change of pace). For those on the way to Hana it's a good stop for a meal before the long portion of the drive, though I recommend just parking in the pay lot behind the restaurant instead of battling for street side parking.

Hey Eric,

Thanks so much for recommending us on TripAdvisor. I'm happy to hear you and your friends enjoyed our breakfast. We make sure to prepare our coconut syrup with real Hawaiian coconuts so that our French toast tastes vibrant and delicious.

Looking forward to your next visit!

Take care,
Jonathan, Owner

“Good Breakfast”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

A nice stop on your way to Hana. A very busy spot, with good old-fashioned stick to your ribs kind of food. If you're a meat and potatoes person, this is your place.

“Horrible service!”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

First our waitress took forever to come greet us after we were seated, then when she brought our drinks she held the beer bottle by the neck and mouth. And the mixed drink took ages because the bar was apparently poorly stocked. When the food came two of the three hit the table about 20 mins before the last one came. We had to ask for cutlery and she only brought forks so we had to ask for knives too. And once we were all done my father asked for a coffee and specifically asked for a spoon which she had a chuckle about. When the coffee arrived, guess what? No spoon. We couldn't wait to leave. Worst waitress I've ever seen, miss Ashley spent more time flirting with a customer at the bar and talking to the band than actually doing her job. Oh and she brought out bill and before we had a chance to even look at it, she took it away again. Anyways, I will never go back and my parents' good impression from 4 years ago was shattered.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm sincerely sorry to hear you were let down by our service. I completely understand how frustrated you must've felt repeatedly waiting for service and asking for cutlery. Normally our service is much more timely and attentive, but it seems that you caught us on an off day. I'll be sure to speak with the staff about your experience so that we can improve going forward.

Thanks,
Jonathan, Owner

“Lost the Rustic Atmosphere!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We always stop in at Charley's when in Paia, Maui. This time we were surprised by the hawaiian chairs & decor with a new menu and higher prices. They still serve the macadania pancake, which is plenty and very good. It wasn't crowded at all and I feel it has lost some of its charm and just another touristy restaurant. If you have never been there you won't know what your missing.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. While I'm glad you still love our macadamia pancakes, I'm sorry to hear you feel like we've lost some of our charm. We're proud to be a part of the North Shore community, and the last thing we want is to be just another touristy restaurant! The Chairs in the restaurant were falling apart, so we had no choice but to get new ones. The prices are the same on most all items, but had to raise in some cases to keep pace with food costs. As i am sure you understand, food costs have risen over the last few years for all of us. What can we do to improve? I appreciate your feedback and hope to hear back from you soon.

Best,
Jonathan, Owner
