We stopped in here for a late lunch one day. There weren't too many people in the place, but people started trickling in. The art on the wall was the best. So much to look at in regards to Maui, who has visited Charleys, and of course Willie. The server was in the mural on the wall and had a... More

Sounds like a great time overall! Apart from a few mixups with the service, and a slightly greasy cheese steak, I'm happy to hear how much you enjoyed everything. I'll make sure we fix those little mistakes for next time, and I hope you come back soon so we can do more to impress you! Thanks again. Take care, Jonathan,... More

I had the Thanksgiving special, the turkey was so salty, I couldn't eat it, the only thing on the plate that was good, was the cranberry sauce. The sweet potatoes were ok, everything else sucked. They are great for breakfast and lunch, but the chef tonight needs to taste what he cooks. Maybe it was just one bad plate. Otherwise... More

I'm concerned to hear that you got this impression, as we put a lot of care and attention into out Thanksgiving dishes. I'm sorry to hear that the seasoning wasn't quite right, and I'll be sure to look into this further with the kitchen team. I'm glad you're a fan of our food during breakfast and lunch, so I hope...

Whenever we visit Maui we always make it a point to have a breakfast at Charlie's. Rustic decor with much Willie Nelson memorabilia decorating the room. The extremely large pancakes are very good, but so is everything else.

I'm sorry to hear that the beer wasn't cold -- the whole point of serving beer is to serve it cold, so I'm not sure how that happened, but I'll look into it. Thank you for the feedback and for giving us a try in the first place. Take care, Jonathan, Owner More

Burgers and fish & chips were great in this large friendly establishment. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. Charley's was just a few extra steps away from the center of the tourist action which meant that it wasn't quite as crowded as some of the other spots. This made for a very relaxing lunch for the three of us.... More

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
