We stopped by for a barrel-aged beer event, and they had I think 47 different beers on tap on the very large back patio. Huge tap system, looked like it had been brought in for the event. Great selection, including some 3-F, an unexpected surprise. The crowd was laid back and friendly even though it was crowded. The staff was friendly during the event, but then turned pushy as they ushered us to the exits at 5 minutes past 5 when the event closed down. Still worth a stop, however.

busy Friday afternoon visit. 12-15 taps including a half-dozen guest beers. decent quality, small pours available, samples aplenty. the chicken wings were godawful and the pizza looked pedestrian.

Been here dozens of times over the past 5 years. Lots of house beers on tap (including some from other Pizza Port locations) and usually a fair amount of guest taps as well.
The food is always good, the beer is almost always good, the service is hit and miss. Usually its not an issue since you have to stand in the massive line for anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to get served so you probably wont be making much small talk when you get to the front anyway.
Atmosphere is great. Lots of seating. Interesting mix of families, regular bar goers, and drunkards. Next door is the bottle shop which is convenient.
Prices are good, except growler fills.

Surfboards hang from the ceiling. Vibe is uber-caz, you order at the counter and everything. Beers are heavily rotated, which is the coolest thing. Been twice in less than a week and already the lineup is substantially different. Love that aspect. Pizza style ainít my thang but it is what it is and the place has a panache for sure. Old school arcade games, family friendly without being family friendly...great brewer. Not much to be desired really, given its proximity to the beach and all. Shite!

It is very hard to pick a favourite between Carlsbad and Solana Beach. Carlsbad is the larger spot with high ceilings, a surfers cafeteria with an awesome beer list, one of the great California brewers and the most impressive guest tap list when we visited, they must have had 20 guest beers and not common beers at that (stuff like ballast point brandy barley wine). The pizza is stunning, the atmosphere is light, it must feel like vacations any time, especially with the picnic tables and tons of natural light.

(Visited 07/2008): Pizza Port Carlsbad is located right off the I-5 in Carlsbad. Street parking seems to be the best option, since there is only a small private lot behind the building.
The interior has lots of wood, and hanging surfboards and tap handles are the main motif. Picnic benches dominate most of the space, with the bar located along the left side.
The beer list is pretty impressive. There are around 8 Pizza Port beers and 12 guest taps from the likes of Russian River, Green Flash and others. There is a sampler available of just about everything.
Service was good on a busy weekday evening (I imagine they all are). The bartender was helpful with descriptions and samples.
We did not try any food on this visit.
Overall I have been nothing but impressed with the 2 Pizza Port locations and would highly recommend one or all of them as places to stop on a trip to San Diego.

This is a dual review for both the brewpub and the bottleshop next door.
The bottleshop: The shop is a small place, but there is quite a bit of beer there. I grabbed a few things (Achel, Brew Dog Punk IPA, Lost Abbey Lost And Found, and a Pliny the Elder just because it was so fresh). I would have liked to grab a few other things, but I had already spent way too much money at the other breweries. I found a few things that I donít often see in other places, but a lot of the beers I can find at Lone Hill and Walnut Liquorette, so I was not "totally blown away", I guess you could say. But, if you arenít as fortunate as I am to have great bottle shops by you, then this place will be your wet dream.
Some of the prices are a bit high, but I guess you pay a bit of a premium for the selection.
The brewpub: A typical pizza joint. You walk up to the counter and order your food and then (try) to find a place to sit. The place is generally packed and fairly loud, but with good reason.
The beer list is, of course, long and full of great choices. I personally had an Alpine Duet and my girlfriend had a Fox Barrel Cider. They have plenty of guest breweries (obviously) and do growler fills.
The service is good, but nothing special. You pick up your food from the counter (expected), and the bartenders are pretty quick and generally friendly.
The pizza is the best of the food items (again, expected). Some very interesting pizzas, and very good tasting. If youíre in the area, I would definitely recommend stopping in for some pizza and beer, and then head next door to the bottle shop for a great selection.

Big, bright and beachy. Killer lineup of house brews and guest taps. Pizza was okay, nothing special. Some creativity in the beer lineup. However, the pints are served ice cold, no matter what the style. Thatís just silly. Service is pretty good, though and on the whole Iíd come back.

This place was slammed busy. We were warned beforehand that it would take 40 minutes for a pizza so we had a couple beers and it was no problem. There was a solid lineup of house beers on along with an impressive guest list. Prices on the beer and delicious pizza were quite good. This is in good proximity to the Coaster which is a big plus.

That wonderful SoCal joyful surf crowd feel with an insane tap selection from the house brewer as well as the guest beers. Lots of strong beers of the menu, only in pint format though, which is too bad since you canít drink that much and walk out. Thankfully the Coaster train is nearby, just like the Solana Beach location, so you donít have to drive!! The pizza, just like other PPort locations, is simply delicious and utterly memorable. As creative and lip-smacking as this meal can get. I was told their Red Square Imperial Stout was a year-round brew too, which is pretty cool of them. Definitely visit this place if you are in San Diego or North County and have access to the Coaster. DO NOT take your car!! Youíd regret it so much...
