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.

Byron Yee is a Los Angeles based comedian and actor.  He has appeared at the proverbial "clubs and colleges all over the country" and has been seen on Comedy Central's Two Drink Minimum and NBC's Friday Night.

Byron was born in Wichita, Kansas on November 4th, 1961.  His family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma shortly after that and then to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1965 where he considers "home".

Bing Quai Yee was a geologist for Exxon and went where the oil was.  Rosalind Yee taught elementary school for a while before staying at home to raise Stewart, Byron, Corinne, and Allison.


Byron attended D. D. Kirkland Elementary School, Hefner Junior High, and finally Putnam City High School where he graduated in 1979.  He went on to the University of Oklahoma where he graduated in 1983 with a BS in Chemical Engineering.  Coincidentally in that year, he began stand-up comedy at Joker's in Oklahoma City.

Because of the oil bust at the time, Byron was unable to find work as an engineer so he did the normal menial jobs while pursuing stand-up.  He performed all over the country from the Comedy Corner in Dallas to the Comic Strip in New York to the Improv in LA.

In 1986, Byron went back to school to get a 2nd BS in Computer Science, fully intending on moving to New York to be a geek by day and comic by night.
