Nice laid back surfer atmosphere. The service at the bar was great and the brewer took time out to come hang out and talk with us. The beer selection was great with about 10 or 12 beers, some from the other Pizza Ports. Too early to eat but had a good time well worth visiting.
I love the pizza here and the anticipation of entering the restaurant to see what amazing beer could be awaiting for me in a 750mL bottle on the bottom of their souvenier shelf. Cool pizza place that always has a decent selection of expertly crafted beers and an excellent lineup of guest taps as well, on the off-chance that the beers they brew locally just arenít unique or exciting enough. I enjoy stopping in here whenever I get the chance.
Not what i was expecting at all, few selections at the bar with not the best linup of Pizza Port Brews. The ambiance was a loud surfer, tatooed underage wanting to get drunk gang. The service was horrible the barmaid was flirting with some kids and not attending at all. Me and my wife were sitting alone at the bar and it took 20 mins! for service. The best beer here was the Pale Izada on tap. The best thing about this place was the Pizza.. very like Fillipis pizza grotto. The outdoors patio is nice but full. Not returning
Iíve been here a couple of times. Pizza is very good. Beer is decent. They usually have a good selection of guest beers as well as some decent proprietary brews. Got some Lou P Linn from Solanna last time i was in--a special treat. Big hangout for the locals, some travelers. Bar tenders cater to locals. Busy place on Sat. Pmís. There was live music upstairs once. Outdoor seating as well as indoor. Bathrooms downstairs. I like the place.
A staple for us. Excellent pizzas and crust, and always an interesting selection of their own and guest brews. Ambiance is of a pizza joint, often crowded with kids and birthday parties. An odd juxtoposition of family party place and excellent brewpub.

Compared to the other two Ports, this place is huge. It has a front porch, a large main dining area with seperate bar area plus more dining up stairs with another bar. House selection is fair, Port selection and other micros is good. Had Simcoe Pale and it was good with Pizza Monterey.
They had some SPF45 on tap when I stopped in and I enjoyed that, plus I picked up a four pack of Frank Double IPA. Probably the least exciting beer-wise of the three PP locations, but still pretty decent. Didnít try the food, but if itís anything like the other PPs itís probably good.
A nice, supremely laid back place, lots of open air space, and some bench tables outside. As always, the same great pizza port pizza and food. Beers here didnít seem quite as intereseting and experimental as the solana beach location, but still good. Definitely worth a trip, but if you can only go to one, Iíd make it to solana beach if possible. Otherwise, the san clemente spot is still a great place.
Same Pizza Port formula, plenty of home made beers, great pizza, surfer ambience and video games. Pizza is as good as the other 2 but was a little more disappointed with the beers, 4 BMC alternatives, while the Belgian ale was a little lacking. Porter was excellent though.
The third of 3 Pizza Ports, this latest on is smack in the middle of Orange and San Diego Counties. This location also has Pizza Port ice cream as well as bottles of Hop 15 and SPF 45. They usually have a Happy Hour pint for $2.50.
Great old building. Parking can be quite the challange. The staff's knowledge of the beers ranges from great to poor (it seems random from visit to visit). Some of the best pizza this side of Chicago. I'd like to see some more of the funky stuff that's to be had at the more southern locations.
