Went here on 8/12/09, about 12:30 pm.

Wow the streets in San Clemente are narrow. Don't access Port from El Camino Real, use Avenida de la Estrella to park on the roof. Port San Clemente is 2 stories, one houses a single bar which didn't appear to be open, but the bottom level houses a second, larger bar with the kitchen and a place to order food.

The atmosphere is nice, this locale is much smaller than the Carlsbad location, but much less raucous, more laid back IMO, but that just may be because of the time we went.

The bar has about 12-15 Port brews on-tap, one cask, and about 15 guest brews, and some wine. The bartender was prompt and even gave us some free tasters of the beer.

I had the Mesquite BBQ pizza for lunch which was quite tasty. The prices are quite good, under $5 for a pint, but the cask did cost $6. In the end I liked this place, the Carlsbad location has a better selection and the bottle shop next door, but this one is a lot closer actually being in Orange County, a nice place to go for pint or two.

Always enjoy stopping by Pizza Port's San Clemente location. There's an upper and lower bar, with mostly in house Pizza Port selections, though they do carry a handful of guest selections as well. Solid pizzas, just like Pizza Port's other locations. The worst aspect, the place can get noisy; the best aspect it hosts great beer fests from time to time (that manages to stay a bit under the radar).

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.
