I had an idea to what to expect at the Solana Beach chapter after visits to San Clemente and Carlsbad; a hangout with surf and skate brands stickered around the shop, good pizza, and good beer. Relatively small compared to the other locations, but on an early Tuesday that didn't matter much.

Food and beer are ordered at separate parts of the restaurant, though counter service at both stations are quick and very friendly. Pizzas, salads, and snacks make much of the menu, with single slices of pizza available during the lunch hour. Completing the pair is the bar, which was pouring 9 house beers (including a fresh hop pale ale, oatmeal stout, Belgian IPA) and an additional dozen guest beers (Lightning, Ninkasi, Mayan Judgement Day). I opted for two house beers, both delicious and absolutely worth reordering on their own. The beers are inexpensive to booth, going from $4.50-$5 a pint.

Between quality and pricing, Pizza Port holds an edge which is worth taking advantage.

Good beer, decent pizza, college atmosphere. Somewhat noisy but fun. Kid friendly.

Staff is friendly. Whats so cool about pizza port is that all of the locations brew different beer. If you are lucky the person that brewed that beer. There are alot of beers that think should make it to canning like swamis or kooks did. All of the locations that i have been to have been packed full of people. The pizza was ok, not anything i would stand out to me. Very cool brewery. I would say that they take their beers seriously but they are not snobs about it.

Oh and the best thing about the beers that they brew there is that each beer has its own art that i believe is created by the brewer themselves. For example the original artwork for swamis is way different than what made it on the can. i wish they sold some of the art or made available on stickers. Good job guys!

The original! Funny thing is, it might be my least favorite. Vibe is awesome, its Pizza Port! Surf vibe, cool pizza and arcade 80s feel and shit. Its all wooden picnic tables inside, a row of plastic tables I think out front.

They don't seem to be as friendly, nor do they offer as good of a selection as every other PP location. Growler prices, especially refills are ridiculous.

This spot is all about the location and pizza.

Very good pizza and beer. Nice selection of their own brews and a number of other locals. Staff was very nice. To get beer or food you stand in line, which can get long. Place was very busy, but line went fairly quick.

I went for the beer; the vibe was loud and when they called out the food orders by name it was very loud. It has a just out of college type feel. They have sports playing on the TVs. The beer was really good and the server had an opinion and knowledge which was great. We had salad, wings and pizza to eat. I did not enjoy the pizza at the Port, it had doughy soft crust with tasteless cheese. My west coast friend love the pizza, but I did not. I recommend the beer and the wings.
