Pizza Port is a hard place to rate. It is almost unfair to rate several of the categories. First, it is not a fancy place. It is a pizza parlor, after all. The brewery is small so there are a small number of PP beers on tap at any time, but there were also about 10 guest taps with CA micros, including Pliny the Elder. I had a bottle of their SPF 45 Saison, which was excellent and a pint of the Trippel Overhead Golden Ale.

The unfairness comes in the category of service since this is a self-service pizza and beer parlor, the only real service is handing you the food and pouring a beer. The beerman was friendly knew what I would like after a couple questions and was generally friendly. We were there for a mid-week lunch so it wasn't busy.

The food was excellent. Pizzas and salads were the only thing on the menu but the pizzas were huge, had all kinds of toppings available, and had an excellent thick crust, obviously freshly made.

I would definitely recommend Pizza Port and will returning next year when I visit San Diego again. (1,049 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)
