Before you continue reading, know I am a little biased as I have grown up in San Clemente and have seen this building transform a number of time. When Pizza Port finally joined us a few years back now, it was very welcome.

The beer selection is very good. Always a good number of Port/Lost Abbey beers along with some very decent guest beers. My only complaint in this respect is that at times the guest beers can be a little less than par. For the most part, however, they always have a great selection of tap beers and are always willing to let you test a couple to help the decision-making.

While Port is generally known for its beers, the pizza here is pretty good. I would definitely recommend the whole wheat beer crust with olive oil instead of marinara (but make sure light on the olive oil). The food is good, but don't expect too much more than general pizza shop fare.

One of the elements of the Pizza Port in San Clemente that is a bummer is the poor bottle selection. They generally only have a few different options. But if you are going for fresh beer, then it is not much a problem.

To sum, definitely recommended. No place like it in orange county.

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.
