We stopped in for a beer after traveling to Hana. We enjoyed seeing all the items on the wall about Willie Nelson. If you love Willie Nelson, you will enjoy this diversion for a beer or a quick bite. :-)

In the little town of Paia, just short of your Road to Hana, Charley’s is a great choice for breakfast. Reasonable prices and ample portions accent this roadhouse stop.

Not so sure I would eat at Charley's for Sushi. Appetizers, burgers, simple dishes are great though. Entertainment can be interesting as well....
