The fish tacos were fresh and crunchy and the tacos were nice and soft! The Agave Margarita really topped off the meal. The service was super and very hospitable!!! Always a nice place to hang. The deco is fascinating! I'm always looking for some celebrity to walk in and I'm still waiting but it adds a flavor to the good... More

Excellent pizza and really good cornbread and fried chicken. I'm a southern girl so gotta have fried chicken and I wasn't disappointed. Would definitely visit again. The 10 ft tall guitar gift from Willie Nelson on display is really cool!! They say he drops in every now and then.

Stopped here for breakfast - our first this trip in the Hawaiian islands. Had the macadamia pancake with coconut syrup. It was huge and delicious - enough to share for 2 with still some leftover. Great start before swimming in waterfalls on the road to Hana.

This is a great find and a little history of Willie Nelson. We had the Bourbon BBQ pork sliders and they were great. Had a little kick to them since chipotles are in their homemade sauce. The town is adorable and really a "hippie" town. Great shops with interesting clothes, momentos and jewelry.

Had a really good barbecue flavoured burger, real beef nice bun. Gluten free pizza for my wife was nice choice. Seemed to be a local hangout, lots of regulars at the bar for happy hour. Usually a good sign. Nice cold beer at happy hour prices after the road to Hana.

I rarely...extremely rarely, will give an excellent review to any place but I loved the fried Chicken in this place. Great atmosphere, god beer, great staff. The only problem is PARKING. Parking in Oaiai is a nightmare as is the traffic around dinner time. ( We were there for lunch)

Charley's was one of our favorite restaurants, until today. We arrived at 12:00, as usual, but were met at the door and told they were cleaning up from breakfast and we could not be served or even seated. Seriously, who closes a lunch restaurant at 12:00? There was no sign to warn us - in fact, the neon signs were... More

I apologize sincerely for your poor treatment the other day and for the fact that you were disappointed. While we do have to close the kitchen briefly to prepare for lunch, we should absolutely be clearer about that fact, and I am sorry we weren't. Can you please email me at Jonathan@CharleysMaui.com with the date and time of your visit... More

Probably better if you had their pancakes. I had the vegetable scramble and thought that some vegetables were canned. The coffee was pretty poor. The environment had seen better days. Maybe dinner with their music is a better time.

I'm sorry to hear the veggie scramble wasn't up to our usual standards, Susie. I know it's too late now, but I appreciate you letting me know about this. Our Vegetables are never canned, always fresh and almost always local. If there's ever an issue we can solve, I'm glad to hear about it so that I can fix it.... More
