Ahh yes, my stomping grounds. I love this place, quick drive for me down the street. They brew some dank local beers that rotate on the tap list every couple evenings, and they also showcase some other stellar guest brews. The bar is huge with plenty of service (growler fills, bottles too) and a friendly staff. Poor Man’s IPA, Night Rider, and 547 Haight brews are the shit. Oh yeah, did I mention their pizza is killer?
The bottle shop next door offers a sick selection of local craft brews and imports, plus its a sweet place to have tasting sessions.
Perhaps the best marriage of craft beer and pizza that I’ve ever experienced. Lots of collaboration with local brewers. Great music, not too loud to where you can’t hear conversations. High ceilings, partially open air. Delicious pizza! Order both pizza and beer at the counter.
Good place to try a very wide range of their beers. Maybe 30 Pizza Port taps going, along with eleven guest brews. Flights of four little (3oz.) glasses for $6. About 20 different kinds of pizza on the menu. Somewhat crowded on an early Friday afternoon, with a variety of people: young, older, parents w/ young kids, military... Quite noisy, with a loud garish mix of many sports TVs on, and a long line of video games, and an eclectic selection of music (Stones, metal, and Bjork is succession). Kinda felt busy, not at all relaxing place to drink. Service at the bar was good, but the guy at the "Order Grub Here" station was pretty brusque and impatient when I asked questions. Oh, well. I really came for the beer, and it was good to very good.
I was not as impressed with this Pizza Port location as some of the others, this one seeming smaller and cramped. The service was OK but not spectacular, and the beer selection seemed standard and uninspiring. I am sure the pizza/food is fine as it is in all of the other locations.

This is the quintessential north county San Diego stop. Lots of tables with long benches. Massive tap list. Great pizza. Blocks from the beach. Complete San Diego vibe. Perfectly in its place.
Corner building with little parking:( Great surfing vibe with hip decor, open bar facing tanks with 20+ taps:) Yummy lunch special with salad, pizza slice(huge) and pick if brew(7ish bucks). Stellar brews with solid guest lists. A must stop for a brewery tick.
La plus explosive, tumultueuse des adresses Pizza Port, la plus vaste aussi. Pour le reste, c’est de la grande qualité, rien de surprenant. La terrasse à l’arrière est assez grande et peut être très active le soir.
You must stop here if in Carlsbad/Oceanside area. Place is pretty big and usually pretty busy. Lots of Pizza Port beers on tap in addition to some guest taps. Service is good, staff is friendly. Definitely recommend checking it out and at least stopping by for a beer!
not sure how i missed this one. super busy most of the time, but the vibe here is great. bar and huge long open picnic table seating, inside and out. great pizza, port’s biggest beer selection, and good prices. do bring an id to the bar for each beer.
Afternoon session on 27th May 2015. Sat outside with a few dogs and their owners: sunny, friendly day. Inside the large single roomed bar the beers and food were whizzing around and I joined in. Three, four beer flights were taken before pints became the order: very pleasant Pizza consumed also. Lively and fun inside, a little more reserved and quiet outside. Gate to the back yard bar of the Bottle Shop: best of both worlds.
