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.

Billy Gardell works hard. He has no choice. He’s from Pittsburgh. Hard work is the honor code in Pittsburgh, and Gardell lives by it.

And now all this hard work is paying off for Billy, he is now the star of the new CBS hit comedy MIKE & MOLLY (Mondays at 9:30PM ET/PT) where he plays Officer Mike Biggs. And on February 5, 2011, Billy will star in his own one hour stand-up special for Comedy Central.

Billy isn’t your average Hollywood success story. No GQ genetics, no family in the business, no coattails to ride. He took the long road to get here, stopping at every small town honky-tonk, military base, and comedy club along the way. Anywhere he could find a live audience.

Billy started early in stand up and got good fast; headlining some clubs before he was legal at the door. But that didn’t stop him from being as big a hit at the bar as he was on stage. After all, the kid was living his dream and following in the footsteps of his idol, Jackie Gleason.

As every comic quickly learns when they arrive in L.A., all those years of toiling in the clubs to become a great comic don’t mean a thing in Hollywood. You start working your way up all over again. But before long, Billy have built quite impressive acting resume for himself with regular guest appearances on My Name is Earl, The Practice, Yes Dear, Monk, Judging Amy, Desperate Housewives as well as a co-starring role in the critically acclaimed FX series Lucky. On the big screen, Billy made his film debut alongside Anthony Quinn and Sylvester Stallone in Avenging Angelo and afterwards scored a rather memorable scene with Billy Bob Thornton in the Cohen Brother’s Bad Santa.

Billy’s dedication to acting, along with continuing to tour as a stand up, have allowed him to grow consistently stronger in both arenas. His stand up show is a powerhouse. His grounded, down-to-earth point of view hits a strong chord with American audiences. Stories about his rough childhood, wild adolescence, and new family life are executed with the skill of a master craftsman.

In his spare time, Billy enjoys spending time with his son and following the Pittsburgh Steelers.
