Geiger Key Marina - A great local hang-out in Key West
Are you the kind of person that enjoys a great local hang out while on vacation? Geiger Key Marina will be your ticket to Key West paradise.
Geiger Key Marina & Smokehouse is an out-of-the-way, very cool place to visit and revisit as it is sure to become one of your favorite bars in Key West. A local watering hole with great food, fresh fish and live entertainment, fun times will be had by all… even the cat (more later)
A waterside setting and lively atmosphere full of fun people make this one FUN destination. You can dine here for a meal or kick back and enjoy an entire afternoon or evening with great music, great food…and of course, great drinks.
The bar sits on the water and is only a nine mile trip from Key West. If you arrive by boat, you can tie up dockside and come ashore or enjoy the live band from your boat. We sat outside and enjoyed the sunshine, water and live entertainment. This place is so laid back that you can even bring “man’s best friend”…and funny enough…when we were there, we enjoyed watching a couple who brought their cat that was perched on its own bar stool. What a hoot! I think the cat was a regular – he seemed to have a lot of friends stopping by and the bartender knew him by name!
Our first visit included a few personal surprises that I have to share because I think they add to the laid back flavor of Key West.
I was surprised with a trip to KW to celebrate my birthday (not saying which one…haha!) The second surprise is that we didn’t tell my parents, who were already in Key West, that we were coming.
We arrived at Key West airport – EYW – and picked up our rental car. We called my parents – who were joining friends for lunch at one of their favorite places. Hmm…I inquired, “Where is that?” They had no idea we were in Key West and of course, we had no idea where they were headed. I persisted with questions to find out where they were going and how to get there. At this point they probably thought I was acting strange. That’s ok, though.
Skip ahead a few minutes…we are staked out at a gas station, looking for their vehicle to pass by. Finally, we spot them and follow them, hoping they won’t see us as we are now undercover! They pulled up to Geiger Key Marina – This was fun! We parked where they couldn’t see us and started walking to meet them in the street. They were so surprised and confused when we walked up to them! This was quite a surprise and a great memory! My dad still can't believe we showed up!
We recommend it and plan to go back…Soon!
