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.

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.
