This place is great, I just wish it stayed open later. This is a two story pizza pub in San Clemente, CA. The atmosphere is casual and fun. It's not too loud. The seating is mostly picnic table-style with stools at the bars, of course. There are two bars--the main one is downstairs and there is a smaller one upstairs. There are several television screens, though I wouldn't call it a sports bar. In addition to several Port brews on tap, they always have a number of good selections from other craft brewers, including, often some real gems. Two recent examples: a double dry-hopped Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous and Lukcy Bastard long after it had gone extinct most everywhere else. They don't have as large a selection as the Carlsbad Pizza Port, but since this is closer to me, I've been hitting it regularly and it holds its own as a beer destination.

Always enjoy stopping by Pizza Port's San Clemente location. There's an upper and lower bar, with mostly in house Pizza Port selections, though they do carry a handful of guest selections as well. Solid pizzas, just like Pizza Port's other locations. The worst aspect, the place can get noisy; the best aspect it hosts great beer fests from time to time (that manages to stay a bit under the radar).

Definitely get the Swami's IPA when you're there, its an OG IPA from the earliest days of the San Diego brew scene.

Very cool vibe. I was there on a bright sunny day, so the view was gorgeous. Chill pizza place right off the beach. Eclectic decor, a lot of beer related decorations.

House beers were great quality, as were all the guest taps. Great overall beer list. Pizza was really tasty and fresh.

Service was okay, nothing special but nothing negative.

Selection was great. As mentioned, the beer list was awesome in quality. The quantity was there too with a wide assortment of styles. I did a few flights to get a look at the kind of stuff they were making and was impressed.

Stopped there twice in one week while camping just outside of San Clemente. The first time, we had pizza and I had a Swami IPA. Very good experience. The people there were very friendly and the food was solid. It was family friendly and plenty of food to pick from. Same for beer. I had higher expectations for the guest taps but I guess you just have to be there at the right time. Regardless, there was still a lot of beer choices, especially their own. The second trip once again was outstanding. It was in the middle of the week and during the afternoon so it was quite and slow at the time. We ate at the second level and ended up talking to a friendly couple that sat at a table next to us. Overall, it was a very good experience and recommend any family to visit the place for the food and beer.
