We have been here a few times for lunch. This is a place where Willie Nelson plays at times so there are pictures and a big guitar for him. Good pizza and very relaxed place.

Long, storied history. Local hangout but travlers seemed really welcomed. A good choice for colorful atmosphere and solid Maui grub at "reasonable" prices. Fish, salads, fries, sliders, tap beer all +++. Happy hour 3-6 so you can get a break from the $30 meals at...More

During my first trip to Charley's two years ago, I had the tacos, which were edible despite the stale shells. I notified the manager, and he discovered that he had received a whole batch of stale taco shells. He gave us a free dessert (meh)....More

The food was just fair and service was slow. Parking and traffic getting there was terrible. Unlike places we like better, we will not go back.

We had breakfast here and the food is ok, but the atmosphere is wonderful. There is a mural that is so fun to look at and try to identify the people.

Stopped by on a trip to the Bamboo forest. From the outside I had low expectations of this place. But I must say inside was a a huge bar area and a pretty fancy stage. They had lots of TVs for viewing sports. We just...More

I have had breakfast here on two occasions, once after riding down from Haleakala and once after we drove down. The pancakes were awesome! We enjoyed the food and vibe from the place. Can't speak to lunch or dinner, but certainly a breakfast recommendation!More

Worth stopping in for a beer and a BBQ plate. Amazingly you might even find a parking spot on the West side of the building, a very rare thing in Paia!
