Heard this name tossed up a lot in forums with out ever understanding what it was. Saw that i was in the area of one, so we decided to get dinner here...

Atmosphere: extremely busy brewpub. I didn't love the set up. Long benches aligned the room. Basically you'll be sitting with strangers. quite loud and hectic.

I didn't like the fact that there are 2 lines: one for ordering food and one for ordering food or beer. Its all okay when you're ordering your food and first beer; however, when it is time for a second beer you have to wait in a long line, which will really demotivate you from buying a second beer...pizza cools quickly!

Service/selection: pizza ports beers and visitor beers....the visitor beer selection is better than most places i went to in CA...but what is the need? pizza port beers are primo in my opinion. i absolutely loved them. i wish they would start bottling. The porter was one of my favorites ever, as well as the hefe!

Food: pizza was so perfect and delicious...not much else needs to be said...

If ever in the vicinity of a pizza port brewery, you need to go! this place is amazing.

Had an IPA, that described wet hops...it was totally flavourless. The pizza was nothing to write home about. The sauce was way too sweet and there was clumped garlic randomly on the pie. Really too commercial for me, I was expecting so much more.

A huge selection of Pizza Port beers and a handful of guest tap lines. Pizza looked amazing. This location is kind of small, but I dug the family style picnic tables.

I think I have been to all of the Pizza Port joints, and this is similar to the rest of them, just located in a different neighborhood. Smaller than the majority, but still good to go. Good pizza, great beer, open seating, and good service. I used to live in Ocean Beach, so of course, I recommend this place.

Food matches the beer. It's in OB cmon... 25-35 on tap. Lots of guests beers. AND... if you have never had PP beers... They dont bottle much, they share kegs with all 5 locations, always a brown, stout, something BA, a quad, a sour.... They have more current recepies than most. They have been at it longer than most and have got it down.

Pizza Port OB was a great stop. More selection than the Carlsbad location, but getting beer was rough. They have one place to order beers and the line got to 20+ people for most of our visit. Service was fine once you made it to the front of the line.

Pizza was great and the vibe was cool - definitely a beach town feel.

Despite the long lines ill go back whenever I get the chance!

I used to scoff on the Pizza Port operations just because I would be relegated to the Solana Beach location which is by far the worst in terms of well.... everything. Ocean Beach is by far the best and being in the most stonerish area of San Diego, well it's a match made in Gomorrah!

Piss pour picnic middle school lunch seating but outside the vibes are nice. You can smoke, sit with your dog, drink killer beers, and eat some unique pizzas. The OB pizza is by far the best. This one also has the best selection of beers often times with good guest beers like Angel's Share and Alpine stuff. Beer/pizza is a bit pricey.

Walking distance to the beach. Very nice.

Lots of beers on taps, including a bunch of house brews and lots of guest brews. The pizza is great. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, and you can't beat the location right next to the beach.
