I had the Sushi dinner and it was absolutely delicious. Fish/onions rings delicious, and the burger worth finishing to the end. The Lilikoi mojoto not so good.

Roseanne, it sounds like you really loved all your food, but I'm sorry if the mojito was disappointing. I hope you'll come back sometime so I can do a better job for you. Mahalo, Jonathan, Owner More

Friendly welcome, great service and good, wholesome food. Hot coffee, eggs with deep colored yolks (fresh from the farm?), perfect bacon and tasty fruit. An enjoyable start to the day!

More of a hometown/local spot! Enjoyed ice cold beers and good margaritas. You can catch old school rock videos on the TVs during the afternoon and sports at night.

Our first time we stopped for lunch & it wasn't too crowded so our server was basically ours the whole time. All 6 of us ordered the fish & chips & were not disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed the deco & heard the place is owned by Willie Nelson & that he frequently has stopped in. When we went for dinner... More

First day in Mauii, my husband buys a t-shirt originally because of the dog on the front. Further research directs us to this terrific restaurant where one of our favourite Country Music Artists plays and hangs out. Willie is scheduled to attend the Musicfest held in our hometown this July. Staff were fantastic, food terrific and overall experience was amazing.... More

If you want the best pancakes, go here. Very good, and reasonably priced. Breakfast is really good. The huge Willy Nelson guitar is interesting to see too.

Stopped here for breakfast (second best breakfast on the island) and really enjoyed it. Amazing live music at night. As you (should) know, Maui is a popular for musicians and all the great ones end up playing at Charley's. Make a point to visit at least twice.

Although parking in Paia can be difficult a stop at Charley's is worth the effort. While I had one of the best burgers I have had in years my wife was in awe of the fish and chips. To make it even better they served the best Mai Tai we had on our trip. The only downside to us was... More
