Went to Charley's. Good happy hour and staff were very nice. One concern no air conditioning. Kinda warm. The chilli nachos were amazing and a must have. Would return even with out the a/c Live music, good food, cold beer.

We sat at a table in the bar by the big TV. There was very loud live music in the dining room. The 'Fish' was delicious and the 'Chips' okay! The 'Beer' was very good. Willy Nelson likes the place, so we thought must be okay. It was! The football was okay too, and I think the SEATTLE SEAHAWKS WON?... More

When my husband and I lived on Maui we hit the bar for Monday Night Football(at 2 pm on Maui) before our container arrived with our TV. Our waitress, Linda, was wonderful and has become one of our best friends we've made on Maui. And the food is good too! Pupu's and great cocktails, and live music. We saw young... More

Despite the interesting art and funky character of the place, the food was greasy and I'm hoping I don't get ill. This is really more of a bar and honky Tonk.

Jonathan H, Owner at Charley's Restaurant, responded to this review

While it's wonderful the atmosphere was impressive, it's concerning to hear the food itself wasn't more impressive. We take great pride in offering tasty and high-quality meals, so this really doesn't sound like us. I'd like to talk more about your experience, too, so I hope we'll get that chance at Jonathan@CharleysMaui.com. Please email me the date and approx. time... More

Live music...yummy pizza...great service...fun atmosphere! We were so happy to find this joint and enjoyed the music. The pictures of all the musicians who have played here were fun to explore. We bought the t-shirts and ate the pizza. Overall a perfect way to unwind after a day of unwinding on the beach!

Charlie's was a great surprise. Located on the main road through town with off street parking it is easy to get to. The menu has everything from excellent cheeseburgers to sushi. All don with their own style. The chili with rice was really good. The onion rings are among the. Eat on Maui. The connection with Willie Nelson made even... More

We heard this was a cool place and went to check it out. It is the best place we found for an excellent breakfast. I am sure it is great all day and into the night as well. I had the Huevos Rancheros and it was superb.

We are still talking about our breakfast at Charley's! We had OUTSTANDINGLY delicious omelets and asked to try 1 of their famous banana macadamia nut pancakes on the side with their coconut syrup to split - a kids pancake. Well, that pancake was to-die-for! I usually only take a bite or two and I split that pancake straight down the... More
