I've now been to all of the Pizza Ports after ticking the elusive Solana Beach.

This is definitely the smallest of the four, and seems to lost some of the charm and granduer through the years. The bar is located almost straight ahead through the door, but the tap list is nowhere near as comprehensive as the other three locations. The bartender working this particular afternoon was nice to look at, though.

The prices and food are pretty much standard for Pizza Port, and so are the long tables that provide the communal atmosphere for this chain.

I don't know if I would necessarily want to come back here as it was probably my least favorite of the four (read: least number of ticks), but if you're in the area, you can't really pass up a trip to Pizza port.

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.

I do love this place, the vibe is surfy, beer selection is weak and the food is mediocre. But the location and vibe is great.
