Fellow lardass, t0rin0, and I came here after a few ticks at Stone for some more beer ticks and a "place tick".

This is sort of fancy for a Pizza Port, the interior, anyway. Maybe it's just because it's so new. But you've got the usual picnic bench style seating as well as some smaller bar table type options. Nowhere to sit at the bar itself as far as I noticed. The bar is pretty much just a beer pickup/order window.

Like all Pizza Ports, you have your choice of several house beers and a nice guest taplist. This one seems to have the most options (other than Carlsbad), but certainly more than Solana Beach.

The beers are pretty good for the most part, but there are a few duds, too. We didn't get any food as we had scarfed down a few dozen double cheeseburgers in the car before coming inside, but it's your standard Pizza Port fare.

It's out of the way for me, compared to the other locations, but it's a really nice spot and I hope to make it back here again.

I visited Pizza Port in Ocean Beach during my recent San Diego visit. Cool place to grab some pizza and home brewed beers. It's a relatively large space with benches and plenty of seating. They had tons of Pizza Port beers on tap.

I watched a portion of the World Series enjoying several porters. This place had a nice vibe. The servers were friendly.

Enjoyed my visit.

Very busy place, yet they get things done efficiently. Wide selection of beers, primarily IPA'S. Very good IPA'S on tap. Have other brewery's beers as well. Pizza was quite tasty. Great spot that fits in with the area vibe (near beach.

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.
