This is the top ranked of the chain, even according to staff, in terms of beer. It is twice the size of Solana and also in a swanky area. It is a family oriented place, very well-managed, everybody knows their job and smiles. I would think they are paid above average. There were a lot more taps than in Solena including guest taps, I believe I was told 39. Both Pliny the Elder and the Younger, whereas only (!) the Elder at Solena. To get here took some planning as you had to figure the Coaster schedule and I had to make a cabbie deal, if you can find one, to get back the 15 minutes to Solena. People were not as knowledgable about beer, either the patrons who were friendly enough and from everywhere, or the staff, and the bar being so much bigger was less conducive to chatter.

Surf atmosphere. Busy and packed. Excellent selection, however, one of their beers was a diacetyl bomb! Prices were fair and the pizza was excellent!

Beach shack like atmosphere, surfboards everywhere, press wood walls, looked pretty beat up, but friendly. Strange setup for a brewpub of this quality and reputation, but it had a certain charm and was undoubtedly a nice change of pace. Bar section is to the left, with the menu on top. There were about 20 Beers available, I was really impressed by the range presented, Everything I had was fantastic and fresh. The crowd was a mix of both young kids and older guys on their lunch break. Our bartendress who was welcoming, helpful and on the ball about what they had to offer served us promptly. Even though I spent more time at their other location further south and Beer quality was quite similar, overall I preferred this locality. It was more spacious, it was quieter and the variety offered was superior. Probably in my top-3 favorite US brewpubs.

Very good beers, very good pizza. The tasters were small, but I compensated by having 12 of them! I was there on a Sunday around lunch time. It was fairly crowded with people of all ages, but not overly hectic. I look forward to going back first chance I get. The two stouts I had were really excellent and their barleywine was the best Iíve had anywhere.

Had great pizza here,and great beers.Gets crowded on weekends.not a huge selection,but most were ones i have not seen elsewhere.all on draft.no bottles at that time.can take jugs home.had good service.one of the bartenders was pretty foul-mouthed and rude talking,but i guess that goes with the bar area.only problem there were kids in the place.

Arrived at Pizza Port after a short walk from the Coaster Station, where the security guard overheard where I was headed and stopped to give me directions and endorse the place. I met not one, but four of the brewers, one of whom was wearing a Stoneís t-shirt. Voluminous beer menu, great pizza, pleasant customers at the bar - Iím already planning a return trip the next time I am within 500 miles.

Large casual comfortable pub. The service was good and prompt. The beer selection was excellent with many beers besides Pizza Port, all good beers. The pizza kicks ass and is as good cold as hot! This was my favorite of all 3 Pizza Ports. Jeff Bagby even took time out to talk to me.

I have to love and respect the large capacity of this facility. Its a blast to visit, especially when they have one of their amazing festivals going on. This has the most spacious feeling of the Pizza Port breweries, and the outdoor court is a great place to enjoy the SC weather. Yes, the beers are amazing, and I think that goes without saying. I wish I could get down to Carlsbad and visit more often.
