Our first stop in SD after a long ride from the mountains, this place is just a terrific BA stop. Casual, fun athmosphere, outstanding house brews and guest brews, mostly other SD area micros, tasty salad to start and outstanding pizza to finish, friendly folks enjoying life all around us, LOU P.LIN2x IPA, wow, what outstanding stuff! ...Yeah it was crowded, but the salad and beer held us over till the pizza was ready, and we were able to squeeze into a few seats... Go, relax and enjoy an outstanding brew destination, they even had the METS game on!

I had an idea to what to expect at the Solana Beach chapter after visits to San Clemente and Carlsbad; a hangout with surf and skate brands stickered around the shop, good pizza, and good beer. Relatively small compared to the other locations, but on an early Tuesday that didn't matter much.

Food and beer are ordered at separate parts of the restaurant, though counter service at both stations are quick and very friendly. Pizzas, salads, and snacks make much of the menu, with single slices of pizza available during the lunch hour. Completing the pair is the bar, which was pouring 9 house beers (including a fresh hop pale ale, oatmeal stout, Belgian IPA) and an additional dozen guest beers (Lightning, Ninkasi, Mayan Judgement Day). I opted for two house beers, both delicious and absolutely worth reordering on their own. The beers are inexpensive to booth, going from $4.50-$5 a pint.

Between quality and pricing, Pizza Port holds an edge which is worth taking advantage.

Pizza Port is a good place to get a fresh draft and pizza in Solana Beach. On tap is a good selection of house beers. Average prices of about $5/pint as of December 2012. Wine and beer is served in a plain glass at about 55 degrees (my guess). The pizza was good, the music classic rock and the service good (behind the bar only). Cashier short-changed my wife by a dollar.

Typical beach casual restaurant ambiance. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and tables. About 25 well-behaved patrons were there on pre-Christmas weekend afternoon.

Plenty of street parking is available in the neighborhood. It's easy to get there off Coast Highway, across from the Amtrak station, and to find with GPS.

Brought the kids in for lunch at Pizza Port as there was a little playground right down the street by the beach. Worked out great. We strolled in right as they were opening, first people in. As such we may have caught the staff unprepared. The first two people we spoke with were behind the registers and were unwelcoming and acted as if it was an inconvenience we were there. Turn-off. However, as the bartender showed up and the cashier came over they were very helpful and pleasant, though I have to rate as 3.0 due to the initial impression. Bartender went out of his way to help a foreigner from Colorado ;) Ordered a pizza while the kids ran around the open area with long benches. Cool vibe. Brewery right behind the counter. Guy was taking a hydrometer sample while we sat, pretty cool. Plates, silverware, and boxes along the wall, very do-it-yourself. The other guy behind the bar hooked up a free One Down Brown as he was obviously hung over and poured the wrong beer. Kind of him. Overall, if I lived near by I'd be here all the time. The kids destroyed the pizza, which was pretty good. Enjoyable. Great beer.
