The smallest of the Pizza Ports and also the original. I loved the vibe here- similar laid back family casual dining atmosphere with a brewpub mixed in. Lots of kids and families and beer loving adults. The 40 year old woman in front of me in line scarily knew a lot about beer. Service was super friendly. The beers here were a little lacking compared to the other Pizza Ports not in quantity but in house beer quality. A few were quite good and even GABF medal winners. One homebrewed competition winner beer was a drain pour. But you get $1 flights of 4 at a time, which is a steal. $5 pints of almost everything else! Excellent guest taps. I mean, all the Pizza Ports are like dreams come true: awesome beer, awesome pizza, awesome prices, awesome atmosphere, awesome location. A world class model.
Spent the afternoon here with Tomme Arthur, so my comments might be a bit biased. The feel is the same as the Carlsbad location, except in a smaller, more homey feeling. The standard pub beers are very good, Swami’s IPA being my standout, but what makes this place special are Tomme’s unique Belgian-style creations, world-beaters in every case. This man is doing incredible things and will put his mark on the brewing world I am sure if he gets a bit more exposure. The pizza is as marvelous as other PPorts which is why I recommend you have a meal here. You’ll be able to have more beer!! And please, do not be afraid to pay the 10$ 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...
Small and crowded but the original. Pizza and waitstaff are typical. Beers are Pizza Port (which is solid across all locations). A bit crowded and quirky compared to the others. Not as nice of an atmosphere as San Clemente (probably the best ambiance of the 4). They seem to have quite a few less taps than the other locations. Parking is a bit tight. A great stop if you are in the Del Mar area.
Another awesome location, right by the water.
Lots of people inside, many locals drinking local beers, always a good sign and indeed, a good line for people buying beer.
About 10 home beers on tap, and many other craft beers available.
Really friendly staff that even let me sample some of the beer as extras.
Inside has a few tv’s, long benches that make it easy to chat with other people.

La qualité de la bière est excellente, la gestion générale de l’endroit un peu moins aiguisée. Pas mon préféré jusqu’à maintenant...mais Pizza Port étant ce qu’il est, je vais y retourner plusieurs fois. La note se verra peut-être bonifiée.
