the quintessential surfer hangout. pizza port in Solana Beach is a low-ceiling, picnic table, order at the counter type of place with surf boards, ropes, and other random pieces of beach-esque objects hanging around. the catch: the beer is great and the pizza is even better.

atmosphere is explained above, with a bustling aura. this place apparently gets packed nightly, giving it a curiously intriguing atmosphere.

quality and service are on-par. beers are all served in tumblers, with friendly staff, and a general lack of excitement for great beer, but the beer and food make up for it.

selection is good. ten to twelve house beers with other various guest taps from souther California.

food is great. the pizza is why this place is well known and it definitely lives up to the hype. the Carlsbad is excellent!

overall this is a solid stop for beer and pizza, but only during off-peak times. patrons tend to wait in line for up to twenty minutes to get a single beer during peak times, which really demonstrates the problem with deli-style ordering and no waitstaff. check it out. cheers! (1,097 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)
