Loved this place, got in early on a sunday evening(Mothers Day,My wife rocks!) Pizza was great, some driving games that kept my 3 year old occupied, decent selection of drafts, including 2 cask beers, I bought beer to go, while they were in their rush, and they were still very nice. A great Typical Cali beach hangout, Great! Stay away from the M&M machine, it ripped my boy off! LOL.

Awesome selection of beers in a true So Cal surfer bar/pizza joint. This place is awesome. Pizza is awesome. Bought bottled SPF 45 and a growler of Santa’s Little Helper. Staff allowed me to try all of their brews, most for free.

The best of the 3 ports. The pizza kicks all ass. Usually some new kick ass beer that they make, and they have some other micros that are solid. They got hank jr on the jutebox. The picnic tables rock. A great drinking and dining and drinking more experience.

I would say that the Tour Guide’s comments are incorrect. PP Carlsbad has double the brews on tap(easily) that PP SOlana Beach does. PP Solana Beach is a more family friendly place with less seating than C’Bad and more kid oriented stuff. PPSB consistently has Swami’s IPA which is a definite plus, but if you’re looking for selection, and room to spread out, go to PP C’Bad.

This place is very casual in appearance and looks a bit rustic with warn furniture and wooden benches. When I arrived it was late afternoon, there were only a few people there. The employees did not seem to be very happy being there - but then again they were not directly unfriendly. Because I wanted to taste as many as possible of the 20+ beers on tap, I asked for a "half pint"; the bartender looked like I had just asked him to poke out his eyes and join a Satan worshipping cult! After phoning his boss and confirming if it was possible, I was served my half pint of Dawn Patrol mild, which were brilliant. As the evening progressed, and the place got busier, the people behind the bar defrosted a bit, however.

Pink Floyd where played, which automatically gives extra points on the ambiance, but interrupting it all the time, with the PA, announcing which dishes are ready to be picked up, nullifies that credit somewhat. The beer selection is great, with 14 of their own beer on tap - which all of the ones I tasted were good to excellent. The quest beers are pretty good too, and I enjoyed the Alpine Pure Hoppiness tremendously.

I cant say much about the food, as I only ordered a "portzel", which they claim is a pretzel. It is not. It was just normal bread - but pretty good anyway. It is a place that I would recommend for the beer, and nothing else.

I've spent many hours drinking some great brews at the port. Excellent selection of in-house and guest brews. Typically pour a full range of beer styles on draft, including many great seasonals. Their guest list usually includes selections from Bear Republic, Green Flash, Alesmith, Stone and Craftsman. The pizza is also quite good...very chewy crust and copious amounts of toppings. The attentiveness of the bartenders ranges from excellent to aloof. Overall one of the best brewpubs in San Diego (and quite possibly California).

This place is awesome. Not only do they have an amazing selection of brews that keeps rotating on a regular basis, but they have great pizza too. The atmosphere is unique too, in that its just a basic bare bones pizzaria, complete with self-service, picnic tables, and video games. My only real major complaint is that all of the beers are served in pint glasses. The beer is fantastic, but its hard to fully appreciate it to the fullest when its served up with poor barware. I understand the cost savings and I’d rather have it taken out of the glassware than out of the beer, but really - I find myself brining home growlers of the stuff simply to retaste it from the proper glassware. Hmm... maybe thats their strategy.... Anyway, an amazing place - I make the two hour drive down just to visit on a regular basis because its that good. The best beer of any microbrewery I have visited to date.

I visited Pizza Port - Solana Beach a few times in the past, and I thought I rated it right after the first trip. Guess not. I must’ve held off on rating the place because it seems to be the San Diego area’s go-to brewpub destination and I guess I didn’t feel a need to weigh in. The beer and food here are spectacular, and Pizza Port’s popularity is well-deserved. However, that popularity also brings a lot of squares, douches, and families to the place, which makes finding a seat a danged nightmare most of the time. The GF and I were here on the night of the Holiday Bowl, and the crowd really ruined the experience for us. I’d love to hit Pizza Port on an off night to kick back and actually enjoy its awesome tap selection.
