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.

What would you do with your last year on earth?
This young songwriter knows what he’d do with his. After witnessing a friend tragically lose his life, Ryan Murphy (FYOE frontman) sold what he had and hit the road with nothing but a backpack and a bucket list.
His blog has since gained attention across the globe, landing him interviews on national morning television programs in Australia (his homeland) and a stack of online buzz. “I still can’t believe the impact the blog has had,” Ryan says. “It’s been great sharing my story ”.
Top of Ryan’s bucketlist was to become a recording artist in New York, but after moving there mid 2012 he found the big city lifestyle didn’t suit his nature. He now calls Austin, Texas home.
FYOE is a collaboration between Ryan (acoustic guitar/vocals), Jimmy Milner (drums/vocals) and Kris Afflerbaugh (upright bass/vocals). The trio’s sound spawns from Ryan’s love of organic songwriting and Kris and Jimmy’s backgrounds in Jazz and country. They’re labeling it “Roots/Pop”.
All music graduates, these guys have been been deep in the Austin scene a long while now. If they’re not backing other artists they’re playing private events. In December the collective took home the ‘Best Performers Award’ voted by Texas addition.
With 10,000 hits to Ryan’s blog this year alone, it’s fair to say there’s a bit of buzz about FYOE already. With songwriting well beyond Murphy’s years and musicianship of the highest caliber, FYOE are set to take Austin by storm this summer.
