Spent the afternoon here with Tomme Arthur, so my comments might be a bit biased. The feel is the same as the Carlsbad location, except in a smaller, more homey feeling. The standard pub beers are very good, Swamiís IPA being my standout, but what makes this place special are Tommeís unique Belgian-style creations, world-beaters in every case. This man is doing incredible things and will put his mark on the brewing world I am sure if he gets a bit more exposure. The pizza is as marvelous as other PPorts which is why I recommend you have a meal here. Youíll be able to have more beer!! And please, do not be afraid to pay the 10$ or 12$ for the 750ml bottles they sell here. There is an enormous chance that you will be buying one of the rarest, soon-to-be international superstars...

The smaller but slightly better cousin of Pizza Port - Carlsbad. The selection of beer seemed a little smaller than at Carlsbad, but the quality of the beers they had was better. Lotís of high abv stuff the day I was there. I only had three beers during lunch and ended up with a killer hangover by the end of the day. The atmosphere is generally the same, plenty of tvís and games to go around. The pizza is great; I still like Pizza Portís Pizza better than any other pizza I have had in So-Cal.

Great location. Hip, young crowd. Great place to fill up before dropping some cash at the races. Take advantage of their annual road trips to the Padres and Charger games. You wonít be disappointed.

In southern California there are many different pizza brewpubs. Iíve been to all of them and Pizza Port in Solana Beach is by far the best. This Pizza Port is the original and in my opinion the best of the three. The location is superb, a couple of blocks from the beach. The restaurantís atmosphere is friendly and family oriented. Donít be shy though, because when you eat here you, everyone sits together on picnic benches. In the back are a bunch of video games. You can also see where they make their own beer from your seat. On to the grub and grugÖ Their beer is very good. While they have a great selection of guest beers (most are local micros) Iíd recommend trying their beers. Feel free to ask to sample some or all of their beers to help decide what to drink. They have a great brewer who makes top notch beers. Not only is the beer good, but they also make a pizza thatís to die for. If you are in the area donít miss this great place. (The only reason I am giving the selection a 14 is because they didnít have my favorite beer on tap, Cuvee de Tomme)

Great Beer and the Pizza is also real great. This is a real beach bar that is run by people who surf on the other side of the hill at pill box. I eat and drink here must weekends. ENJOY

Pizzaport is great just about anywhere! The food is just awesome, especially with a pitcher of Sharkbite red sitting in front of you! Parking can tend to be a slight issue, but once you get around this, gather your 20 best friends and kick your feet up for 5 hours to some big screen tv action! The service is pretty good by most standards and the beer selection speaks for itself!

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.

Pizza Port Solana Beach is simply a great place to enjoy excellent beer. The house beers are always good and the guest tap list is usually full of surprises (including East Coast brews from Dogfish Head and others). The food is simple but pleasing, pizza, salads, even salad pizza. Service is all counter-based and most of the workers wear their ďCool-BadgeĒ on their sleeves but they are pleasant. Ambiance is So Cal surfer bar, wooden communal picnic tables, surf boards, video games and possibly the smallest brewery you will ever see. A must visit if you are in San Diego.

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).
