Charley's is my kind of place - Willie Nelson


Take a step back in time and find true Aloha.

Charley's Restaurant and Saloon, established in 1969, is an award-winning, Maui Landmark.

Charley’s is a reflection of the culture of Maui, the essence of its foods, and the warm spirit of entertainment and Aloha.

We welcome you to a favorite community gathering place and celebrated destination spot.

Charley’s is located in Paia, Maui, Hawaii; a former sugar-plantation town that serves as the crossroads to the North Shore of Maui.  Known for its large waves and ideal conditions for surfing, windsurfing and kite-boarding, the North Shore of Maui is a water playground. The North Shore is also known for its rainforests, waterfalls and hiking.

Paia maintains its small-town, old Hawaii charm, and is now a bustling destination with restaurants, bars, shopping, coffee and gelato.

At Charley’s you never know who might be sitting next to you. It’s long been a favorite hang-out for surfers, adventurers, writers, hippies, rock stars, artists, business leaders, celebrities, and all types, looking to get away and find the ultimate in Maui hospitality.

Family Wagon

Family Wagon’s searing blend of rock n' roll was born in early 2008 at Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego, CA. Ryan Weiss (guitars) first met Gareth Moore (bass) shortly after Gareth had completed a stint of living in his van, a Family Wagon, in Ocean Beach, CA and decided to attend college. They began jamming and working on starting a band. Shortly thereafter, Bryan Bangerter (drums, vocals), a multi-talented musician from Hawaii, joined the boys to make a band more of a reality. Next, a farm boy from Kansas, Calen Lucas (vocals), joined the mix bringing along his microphone and commanding vocals. The group began performing around town while writing and expanding their following. Trips up to Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Francisco helped the band continue to hone their captivating live show. Most recently, the band traveled to Austin, TX in March 2012 for a successful trip to showcase at the annual SXSW festival. Family Wagon released their first LP "Teleblaster", recorded by local musician Keith Milgaten (Jamuel Saxon), in December of 2010. They have recently added a fifth member, Jarel Paguio (organ/keys), for their latest EP entitled "Last Drag" which is slated for release in Spring 2012. "Last Drag EP" was produced and recorded in Long Beach, CA by Matt Wignall (Cold War Kids, Deep Sea Diver, Mando Diao). “Family Wagon plays hard-driving rock that pairs a Summer of Love vibe with tons of testosterone. You can practically smell the man-sweat…” (SD CityBeat Magazine 2010).
