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.

Dan Gabriel is one hilarious stand-up comedian because you already know him. Everybody has a buddy just like Dan. He is that friend of yours who says something inappropriate to your grandmother about her dentures. Dan is your cool cousin who tells you about a band a few months before their hit single blows up the radio. He is that guy who you stayed friends with even after he broke up with your sister. Its Dan’s ability to connect with audiences on a personal level that makes him funny.
Half Filipino and Half Bald White Dude is what makes up Dan’s vaguely ethnic look. Born and raised a surfing community next to the beach but forced to watch the movie “Jaws” at age 3 left him confused and scared of water. Once in high school, Dan developed a sense of humor in an attempt to be as cool as guys who could surf. While attending UC Davis, Dan’s friends forced him to try stand-up comedy. Soon Dan was opening for comedy legends like Dave Chappelle, Mitch Hedberg and George Lopez. After moving to Los Angeles, Dan won the LA Take Out Comedy Competition which led to hosting his own show “Asia Street Comedy” on AZN tv.
Dan’s comedy is PG-13. Without graphic violence or nudity, Dan casually delivers what his friends refer to as “Smart Stupid Comedy.” He is a soft sell who doesn’t beat you over the head with his material. If you like a joke, cool. If not, there’s another one coming in about 10 seconds. Dan has appeared on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, the Late Late Show and Star Search just to name a few.
