Stopped here last night after a fabulous trip to Stone

Ordered a Rogue XS Old Crustacean barleywine first, and it was served in the appropriate glassware, five dollars was a good price for this, considering a 750 ml bottle is around fourteen dollars

Other guest beers there were Lightning Fulminator, which I tried later, Russian River Damnation, Ballast Point Yellowtail, Sierra Nevada Harvest and Brown, and Fox cider, not a bad selection, but not as good as Carlsbad

They had about eight of their own beers, Grumpy's Pale and Hot Spots Hefeweizen were the two that I had, also there was a cream ale, Ponto Pale Ale, and amber and stout, pints of their own beer were only four dollars, but unfortunately they did not have any Lou P. Lin, Synergy, or the Mother of All Beers

Had a pepperoni and sausage pizza, but it was not as good as the one I had at San Clemente a couple months back, the sauce was very different and lacked the sweetness I liked from the last place

This Pizza Port was very crowded and loud, took us about fifteen minutes to find a seat, a lot of young people, seemed like a college crowd even though it is not really close to any bug universities

Getting bear was easy and fast because you just walk up to the bar and order one right there, bartender was nice and gave me some free taster glasses

Place was pretty cheap, only spent twenty-five dollars total, fifteen for the pizza and the rest on brewskies

Probably my least favorite of the Ports, but still not bad and good beer selection for the small amount they carry, would go back if I was in this area and was too lazy to drive to the fantastic Carlsbad location, or further down south to the Liars Club or O'briens Pub

The original! Funny thing is, it might be my least favorite. Vibe is awesome, its Pizza Port! Surf vibe, cool pizza and arcade 80s feel and shit. Its all wooden picnic tables inside, a row of plastic tables I think out front.

They don't seem to be as friendly, nor do they offer as good of a selection as every other PP location. Growler prices, especially refills are ridiculous.

This spot is all about the location and pizza.

Very good pizza and beer. Nice selection of their own brews and a number of other locals. Staff was very nice. To get beer or food you stand in line, which can get long. Place was very busy, but line went fairly quick.

I went for the beer; the vibe was loud and when they called out the food orders by name it was very loud. It has a just out of college type feel. They have sports playing on the TVs. The beer was really good and the server had an opinion and knowledge which was great. We had salad, wings and pizza to eat. I did not enjoy the pizza at the Port, it had doughy soft crust with tasteless cheese. My west coast friend love the pizza, but I did not. I recommend the beer and the wings.

I do love this place, the vibe is surfy, beer selection is weak and the food is mediocre. But the location and vibe is great.
