No idea how I could have missed reviewing this place in the several dozen trips here. Most recently visited on April 27, 2013.

The beer is usually good, never bad but not always amazing. As with all Pizza Ports they do hoppy well. Ryan (the newest brewer) did a beer a coffee stout a while back that was very good for the style. Not sure if they make it anymore since it was made by the old brewer but the IPL / Claudie’s Lager was really good and I’d drink that every time I went if it was available. They usually have a few guest beers as well but those are pretty random and normally not anything I really care to drink (with the occasional exception of Pliny or Blind Pig).

The food is always good here, however fattening. Eat here, drink here, and walk to the beach from here. Complaints include food taking forever to get made, the place being packed, and the setting sun blasting you while you try to eat, oh and the food is not cheap.

MexiCali style building which is open and airy. Multiple rooms and levels with some hidden balconies. Service was very pleasant and a large selection of beers. Pizza was good as were the prices. Overall a nice stop.

Maybe a little too bright for me and too many kids but oh well. Pizza was top notch. A touch expensive but good for the money. Guest list was very good but came for the house beers which were wonderful. Good service at the bar. Highly suggested and very SOCAL in feel.

My original rating here was not too favorable but on a subsequent visit I reassessed and uploaded a new review. The beer selection is smaller than other PP locations, or so it seems to me. The pizza is pretty good and the open air restaurant concept fits the SoCal life perfectly.

Cool laid back place. Food is great, beer is better, sunshine is the best. Really cool building. Wait staff could use some enhanced social skills.

Visited at lunchtime on 17th July 2014. Bar and brewing equipment one end, a mirrored wall and benches the other end, in between there is a spiral staircase with the kitchen and food counter behind it. Fading whitewashed walls and red tiled floor. Upstairs is a smaller bar and more tables and seating, a car park on the roof. Out front are two covered patio areas. Mixed bunch of customers, with noisy children arriving in droves just after we arrived. Shannon was the bar lady and she poured me two flights and wrote down the beers for me, pleasant and helpful. Beer and food in great shape, 14 of their own in house brews on tap with 14 more guests, 1 cask offering. I liked the vibe of the place, could have done without all the children but otherwise a very good beer venue.

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.

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.

Pizza needs work. Ceasar salad is good. I loved the beers. This is a Hop forward joint.
