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.

Imagine if you could construct a killer rock group, using the best musicians from any band within the past 30 years. You'd choose a rattle-your-fillings lead singer, a guitar player capable of screaming riffs, a fret-shredding bassist, and a thunderous drummer to keep the beat. That's exactly what Robin Zander –touring front man for Cheap Trick - did when he assembled this group of monstrous talent, The Robin Zander Band


Zander enlisted axe man Mark Hitt, who played guitar with The Tubes and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin, Jack Bruce of Cream and more. He picked Larry Hobbs of The Juice to play bass, and long time friend and drummer Steve Luongo, who has performed or recorded with John Entwistle/The Who, members of AC/DC, Todd Rundgren and Leslie West/Mountain to name a few.

Zander says "We just want to go out and have a ball and who knows what special guests might just show up on stage."


Singing classics like Surrender, I Want You To Want Me and The Dream Police, Zander has sold millions of albums and played large-scale venues the world over with the famous rock maestros Cheap Trick.  He now looks forward to performing some Cheap Trick hits and deep cuts along with songs from his solo album as well as classic rock staples from the band's collective history.
