Pizza Port offers a somewhat unusual experience. Lots of shared picnic tables lined up end to end, kids running around and sounds of video games in the back. No real bar per se though there are a few seats by the taps and one table tucked away in a nook with a TV. Works for me, some may not like it particularly when crowded, which it often is.

Service is a bit like Southwest Airlines with some humor injected into the routine. If I'm going to have two beers I'll pay for them up front and cut the money line as you can't exactly run a tab in this environment.

Good selection as of last visit, 17 house beers and 8 guest taps. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday offer a discounted guest or house beer after 5. Check their calendar http://www.pizzaport.com/calendars/current.pdf

Food is limited(pizza, salad, wings, some desserts) but good and fresh. Bottom line is that I can't seem to drive through Solana Beach without stopping here, and a must do before a Belly Up show. (973 characters)

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. (222 characters)

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. (481 characters)

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. (125 characters)
