We ended up at Charley's on accident. So glad we did!! We got a breakfast burrito and the banana nut French toast to share. The breakfast burrito was bigger than the plate it was served on. It was so yummy. So many wonderful flavors. The French toast was amazing!!! It was topped with macadamia nuts and caramel. It tasted like... More

Great place to eat on way to Hana. Great bar and restaurant owned by Willie Nelson. Been here at least 6 times and still hoping to see Willie here. Food is great-beer is cold. What else would you want

Stopped by after reading online that Willie owned this place. Waitress informed us that he doesn't own Charley's but is friends with the owner and stops by 3-4 times per year. Nevermind though, the food is fantastic! I had the turkey club with sweet potato fries and my husband had fish and chips on advice of our waitress, both were... More

We just went in to have a drink, curious about Willie's bar. My whiskey sour was not good! My friends Amaretto sour however was the best. It was time for the kitchen to close, we had our drinks and left. It was only about 20 people there on a Sunday night around 8:00. I was disappointed, I was really expecting... More

I'm disappointed too -- both of your drinks should have been just as good as the amaretto sour was. I hope you'll stop by again before you leave Maui, because I know we can do better. Best, Jonathan, Owner More

This was our first time visiting this establishment even though we have been to Maui several times. We have always heard they had the best breakfast and so we had to try it this trip. They did not disappoint. Breakfast was hearty and delicious. We will be visiting again when we return in Feb.
