My wife and I recently went to Pizza Port on our vacation to San Diego. It was our first official stop.

A = Nice overall atmosphere with beer hall, bench seating. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was packed. There were people circling tables to get a seat. Crowd was a mix of young, surfer crowd and families.

Q = Service was mixed. In regard to our food order, everyone was very friendly and the food was ready quickly. However, on the beer ordering side, I didn't not find the bartender helpful. There are probably about 20 taps, about half their beer and half rotating drafts, mostly local. I decided to try a sampler of their beers and asked for a few recommendations. I know what I like, but I also like to try local beers that are popular. I was told one beer wasn't more well known or popular than the others. Not really a big deal, I made my own choices, but she could have easily been more helpful.

S = Selection was great for me. I wanted to try some of their beers and some other locals and that is precisely what they had on tap. If you are looking for selection besides locals, then this will not be your best bet.

F = Food was good. We shared a Caesar salad, some of their beer buddies and a small pizza. Caesar salad was solid for a pizza place, it was nice to see some green in the romaine lettuce, instead of the seemingly only white pieces you get from people that use pre-packaged lettuce. Beer buddies are basically cheese bread and although delicious, taste like most of the cheese bread you've had. Pizza was good but, nothing you couldn't live without.

V = Good value. The food and sampler, pints were all reasonably priced.

Overall, a nice place to stop in San Diego. It's a good place to grab some quality pints and pizza and then walk over to the nearby beach or build up an appetite at the beach and walk over for a few you pints and some pizza.

This was a must stop on my San Diego trip, as I could hit a great brewpub and hit the beach. Parking was very difficult, but eventually I found a pay lot that had some space. The building was small, and is filled with long picnic tables which creates a communal dining and drinking experience. Some tanks are visible from behind the bar, and the kithen is open. Little bit of a dive bar feel here with all the signs and stickers on the walls, and surf boards hangong from the ceiling.

The beers were fantastic and fresh, and the pizza was good, but being from Jersey I expected more based on the reviews - NY / NJ pizza still rules. Service was prompt despite the line, and the pizza was out in 10 minutes. All in all it was a good time.

The place is not small but it's not large either. When it's crowded you may have a hard time finding a seat. But the atmosphere is very chill, laid-back OB vibe which is nice. The service is friendly and I had no complaints. It's kind of a serve yourself as no one will come to your table to take your order.

The beer selection is by far one of the best. So many styles represented, and many different breweries to choose from.

The pizza was quite good. One of the better pizzas I've had in San Diego. And they have a gluten free option for those who are into that kind of thing. Prices were super reasonable. Definitely somewhere I'll be back.
