This was our final stop on our journey down through all 3 Pizza Port locations. This location is by far that most "homey" of the three looking more like a local hang out than the others. It's smaller but still there is plenty of room. The staff here was outstanding. They were all cracking jokes and eager to help. We ordered some homemade coffee truffle ice cream and when they brought us the pint of ice cream, they were out of spoons. It was pretty funny because they were running around looking for spoons and finally one of the servers ran out and got some from some unknown location (proably the bar a few doors down). We were all laughing about it and the whole staff was great to interact with.
When we were there they were selling numbered bottles of Mo Betta Bretta (only 500 available) so it was a treat to pick up a few of those. And the beers they had were good too. They had some great guest brews as well, so their beer selection could not be questioned. Unfortunately they didn't have anything on the hand pumps that day. But this is definately a great stop for a pint and some food, so I know I'll be back.

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.
