A different stlye of brewpub, Pizza Port takes a more European approach to seating and makes you fight for a space at one of the long tables mostly populated by little league baseball teams when I was there. After ordering your pizza you have tons of time before it's done to wait in a second line to get your beer (and finish it and go order a second). Service is essentially non-existant as it is limited to POS purchases. The astmosphere is very lively and if you're lucky and outgoing enough to sit by some good people you'll have an unexpected and pleasant evening of conversation. The bright side is with 25+ rotating taps of only the best beers available, you should have no problem getting the outgoing part taken care of. I haven't been to too many places that have Belgian's and taps from far and wide in addition to their own creations like barrel aged stouts and nitro DIPA's, all for $5-$6. Certainly a place to stop by and give it a try. (951 characters)

Food: Had a BBQ chicken pizza, which was excellent.

Great rotating beer selection and amazing pizza. What more can you ask for? Oh that's right, not having 100 kids running around while you're trying to enjoy them. I swear every time we visit there is a little league or soccer team celebrating something. We still put up with it because the food and beer are top notch. And the bottle shop/tap trailer next door is really nice as well. You can drink bottles on premise or to go which is so nice. (444 characters)

We stopped for a late lunch after hitting the beach with friends. Cool, California beach crowd with both locals and tourist. Beer hit the mark and food was as expected for a pizza joint.

Ordering food was no problem, but getting beer was slow at times. Server was knowledgeable on Wee Heavy's which you don't normally find.

Parking in the back. Worth a stop, but if crowded, it's probably not the best place. (411 characters)

Food & Beer was great. It's a beach joint and self-service so it was a pain to get beer refills when lines got longer, but a great spot overall. (145 characters)

There is no service. I don't get the novelty here - you wait in line to order food, you wait in line to order beer,you have to hustle for a table. Food is mediocre. Beer is solid. But why bother?? Blech. (208 characters)
