Charley’s Restaurant Paia
Charley’s is a well-known, longstanding, casual restaurant in Paia, a small town on the north side of east Maui. It’s at 142 Hana Highway near Baldwin. Phone 808-579-9453.
Charley’s is famous for breakfasts, but it’s also crowded at lunch and dinner, so you can expect a wait for a table almost any time. You have to deal with the traffic getting into Paia from central Maui, and sometimes its hard to find a place to park. But both locals and tourists keep coming back. There’s live music many evenings. Charley’s is named after the original owner’s Great Dane. See below for some specific Charley’s menu items as well as photos.
If you want to escape from the tourist areas near the resorts, or if you’re looking for a good meal not too far from the airport, or on your way to or from Hana, check out Charley’s restaurant in Paia.
