So upon arrival, I was taken aback by the place’s popularity. The place was packed on a Sunday night. Lots of different groups of people out and about. Food took a while - one pizza took over 45 minutes to get to us. The counter-service was a little annoying, as there was no open-tab option - though they could easily have their reasons for it. I wish they had some half-pint options as I wanted to try a few more than I did, but didn’t want to be a jerk and try a number of small thimbles or get full pint pours of things. Those were minor issues as I had a blast and ate some very good pizza.
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.
Nice place very close to the Coaster station. I don’t know what else to say about this one that’s different from all the other PP’s. Very busy, crowded with good pizza and very good beers. Lots of adventurous takes on a wide range of styles. Some hits, some misses, but overall very good quality. I had to wait in a small line to order my beers and Llke the annoying ticker that I am, I asked the girl at the register if I could do some samples. She politely told me that they were too busy, but still threw me a couple small spashes of a couple beers to help me decide. I stood to the side and she kept giving me more when I ran out. No charge. That was pretty cool and very much appreciated. It was very noisy in there and I was alone, so I didn’t stay long, but I wished I could’ve. Fun place.
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.
Visited on Friday 14th November ’14 at opening time, 11.00.
Located right opposite the Coaster/Amtrak stop, PP SB is a 5 minute walk from the beach and also from Culture brewing across the other side of the railway/main road.
Kind of a dive bar feel as per the OB venue. Pretty dark inside, some patio seating outside, it wasn’t the warmest CA day, maybe 70-75 but it was a little too hot inside. The place soon filled up but there were still free tables when we left at mid day.
20 or so PP taps, usual variety - I picked up 7 or 8 new ticks having gone through quite a few at OB the night before. Guest taps are more limited in this venue, maybe 4 or 5.
Usual good freshly made pizzas did the job for lunch.
Service was prompt although it wasn’t swamped at any point during our visit.
Taster trays by the 4 available to aid the tickability.
Overall a solid venue and if you’re taking the train up the coast well worth hopping off for bearing in mind it’s a minutes walk from the station!
