this place is freakin’ awesome. it was one of the stops on our "beer-trip" this spring break. not only does the solana beach pizza port have a great selection of beers, but the atmosphere is also great. sure, some people might complain about kids, duh, it’s a pizza place not a hardcore bar. and as for commenting on the pizza, this is ratebeer.com not ratepizza.com. the staff is super friendly and the seating outside makes you appreciate the sunny san diego weather. it makes drinking beer at 11am even better.
In southern California there are many different pizza brewpubs. I’ve 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 restaurant’s atmosphere is friendly and family oriented. Don’t 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 grug…
Their beer is very good. While they have a great selection of guest beers (most are local micros) I’d 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 that’s to die for. If you are in the area don’t miss this great place.
(The only reason I am giving the selection a 14 is because they didn’t have my favorite beer on tap, Cuvee de Tomme)
Really cool place a block or two from the beach. Very crowded, but was able to get a table before the food arrived. Pizza was excellent. The people taking orders were very knowlegable. They didn’t have exactly what my wife was looking for and let us have a couple of samples. Beer was very solid.

My favorite pizza port. Always nice when you used to bump into Tommee before he moved up the ladder even more. Great brews and pizza
What a great place! Ever since moving to Tucson from San Diego I have really missed this place. Good pizza and beer selection. Nice array of picnic style tables. If your in SD and you haven’t been then you are a fool.
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.
