Stopped here for dinner and beer after making sales calls on a recent trip to San Diego. Located a couple blocks from the beach on a somewhat quiet street with a mix of businesses and residential buildings. Parking is on the street only and seems like it could be difficult at times, but we were pretty lucky and found a spot about a block away. Pretty large inside with basically one wide open room - brewery and bar on the left, kitchen straight ahead and the bulk of the room lined with picnic tables to form kind of a beachy feeling beer hall environment, communal seating type place. Bar is small with about 6-8 seats and also a small rail type area with a few more seats available. A giant 60ish" tv is behind the bar, the whole time playing crazy 40' wave type surfing video. Good selection of beers with a mix of Port's own house made beers and a good selection of guest beers mostly representing other CA breweries and of generally high quality. Service was fast...seemed like there was quite a bit of staff while we were there (especially for the small group of customers at the time, but it was early, so maybe it gets busier later). Hardly any wait to get a beer. Bartender was knowledgable and helpful with suggestions and let us sample several beers to help us find something to our liking. Pizza is surprisingly? good...a deeper dish type pizza that is quite filling but complemented the beer nicely. Crowd was a mix - mostly younger, 20 something locals seemingly from the neighborhood, a couple of families with young kids...basically, I was the oldest person there, probably by a good 10yrs, but never felt out of place or uncomfortable. Great place for a casual, low key meal and a couple of beers. Another place I'd definitely come back to.

Awesome and jam packed pizzeria. Fresh artichoke pizza was very good. Great brew selection and fast courteous service.
Would definitely revisit next time in San Diego!

Had an IPA, that described wet hops...it was totally flavourless. The pizza was nothing to write home about. The sauce was way too sweet and there was clumped garlic randomly on the pie. Really too commercial for me, I was expecting so much more.

A huge selection of Pizza Port beers and a handful of guest tap lines. Pizza looked amazing. This location is kind of small, but I dug the family style picnic tables.

I think I have been to all of the Pizza Port joints, and this is similar to the rest of them, just located in a different neighborhood. Smaller than the majority, but still good to go. Good pizza, great beer, open seating, and good service. I used to live in Ocean Beach, so of course, I recommend this place.

Food matches the beer. It's in OB cmon... 25-35 on tap. Lots of guests beers. AND... if you have never had PP beers... They dont bottle much, they share kegs with all 5 locations, always a brown, stout, something BA, a quad, a sour.... They have more current recepies than most. They have been at it longer than most and have got it down.

Pizza Port OB was a great stop. More selection than the Carlsbad location, but getting beer was rough. They have one place to order beers and the line got to 20+ people for most of our visit. Service was fine once you made it to the front of the line.

Pizza was great and the vibe was cool - definitely a beach town feel.

Despite the long lines ill go back whenever I get the chance!

I used to scoff on the Pizza Port operations just because I would be relegated to the Solana Beach location which is by far the worst in terms of well.... everything. Ocean Beach is by far the best and being in the most stonerish area of San Diego, well it's a match made in Gomorrah!

Piss pour picnic middle school lunch seating but outside the vibes are nice. You can smoke, sit with your dog, drink killer beers, and eat some unique pizzas. The OB pizza is by far the best. This one also has the best selection of beers often times with good guest beers like Angel's Share and Alpine stuff. Beer/pizza is a bit pricey.

Walking distance to the beach. Very nice.
