Visited on Wednesday 12/11/14. Located across the street from South Beach Bar and Grille and about a 4 or 5 minutes walk to Pizza Port. Dive bar feel, 15 or so beers on tap - although a little hard to see whatís on behing the bar when the place is packed. Busy at 5.30pm and nowhere to sit. Tap list decent enough but nothing that blew me away on my visit. Worth popping in if you have the time but not a go to destination for me. First review for over 2 years, wondering if the selection has gone down hill a little since the last, struggling to find the love that this place was once getting?!?

This is a nice beach community bar. The selection was very good and the staff was friendly.

Great selection on tap. Hot bartender, but the atmosphere of the place leaves a bit to be desired. Pizza didnít look good and if you are there at the end of the night, they will give it away to have the next morning. We passed. Still not far from OC PP , so worth a stop over if in the area.

Right out of the 50s/60s - except thereís good beer. Pizza you design yourself. See the pie spin in the air. Lots of taps. Lots of bottles. The pizza guy came over to consult several times, and he brought stuff to put on to enhance the flavor. Beers? 3 dor 4 I hadnít rated. At least. Great service. Venue is open front with high tables and stools. Excellent. Parkiing can be a problem. Surfer dudes abound.

Deliscious pizza and odds and ends, fantastic beer selection constantly changing around local brews at great prices. I had a Pizza Port beer on cask that was not even supposed to be released yet. Great place, right on the beach in a very fun area.

Joint is full of hippies. Lots of bum locals that were chased off the beach when the alcohol ban went into effect. Very earthy types here. Pizza is very good, order by the slice. Very hidden little beer joint that doesnít get a lot of press but has some good bottles (FW 12 was only $20 back then) and the tap list rotates and is always worth a stop in when visiting OTM in OB. Checkit, checkit often, hoepfully when PP OB opens it wonít drown this place out of business, but I think thereís enough hippy love to support 2 beerínípizza joints.

Keep in mind the context - this is a beer bar that happens to service pizza by the slice. The location was nice as far as proximity to the beach, but dear god donít come here in a decent car with decent attire. In fact, many patrons were missing items of clothing - shirts, shoes, etc. Beer selection was among the best in San Diego. Hands down, excellent. Actually it was almost too good - too many of the rare, limited release high ABV beers. This is a non-air conditioned pizza joint, itís hot, and everything is high ABV and/or very hoppy. Oh well, we had local hoppy beers and passed on the rare stuff. Pizza wasnít anything special. Wasnít bad. Selection of pies for your slices was good though. Service was alright. Very inexpensive.

Cool little spot. The foodís not half bad and they always have a solid beer selection. I wouldnít make a trip just to go there but itís definitely worth checking out if youíre in the area.

Pizza and beer. What goes better together then those two things? Nothing I tell you, and this place is as simple as that. Of course only serving beer, they have an awesome selection of tap and in bottles. Including great west brew and some Alaskan beers on tap. The handmade pizza is incredible. And youíre with in shouting distance of the ocean.
