We visited the first time on 4.1.2014. I am a big Pizza Port fan and love their other 3 places as well. This brewpub is located in the beautiful San Clemente. You can enter the pub from two different levels, a nice bar upstairs. Walking down to the lower level you can see the great brewhouse. Downstairs you have a great view to the sea, especially beautiful during sunset. The bar is located directly in front of the brewhouse, which gives a great beer ambiente. Beers are great as in all Pizza Ports. Pizzas can be ordered at a separate counter. Compared to Carlsbad this pub is smaller and also a bit louder. Slightly prefer Carlsbad, however love this pub as well.
The pizza was good and the service was outstanding. The beer selection was diverse and the bartender knew her beer. The atmosphere was that of a restaurant and was appropriate for all age groups. The experience I had was worth the drive from Long Beach.
The most elbow room and seemingly most comfortable of all the Pizza Ports. Like the others, a great selection of guest brews and their own made onsite. The brewery here is in the main room, directly behind the bar. Knowledgeable and helpful bartender. Kudos
Beer selection is the winning formula here. Great beachside atmosphere with very good pizza and salads. Only minor issues include noise (difficult to have a conversation) due to kids in bar and need to add a beer server to alleviate cue times.
Like all the Pizza Ports, sort of an interesting mix of customers. Ranges from kids with their families to local beer lovers to degenerate drunks like myself. Service, food, and beer are always great. Always a good place to stop and have a beer and some pizza.
Neat variant of the Carlsbad location. Nice upstairs area with plenty of nooks for getting nice views of the area. Loads of good beer on tap and decent pizza. Visited during RBSG and the service was excellent for the amount of people they had descending on this place. Wee done!
Maybe this one is not the best but is the only one that i visited two times during my stay, loved it cause i think there is nothing like surfing in San clemente and then have a beer and a slice of pizza! The girl at the bar was very friendly and i bought a growler that i finished on the sea! For sure i’ll be back as soon as possible!!!
Drove an hour out to San Clemente last time I was in So Cal, and it was well worth the drive. If a half dozen Pizza Port beers are not enough for you, they even had an AleSmith on tap. Pizza was better than average, but by the time we had pizza I had already drank my way through their offerings so that might not be the most accurate review of the pizza. Going to AleSmith next time I’m down south, but this was second only to the Russian River brew pub for me so far.
