Pizza Port San Clemente opened just a few days ago in downtown San Clemente. Parking is nearby in public parking areas; just look for signs as you're driving down El Camino Real. Also, if you can part on the roof, if you use the street that runs parallel to El Camino Real, between ECR & the freeway

This is a two story building, with bars and tables both upstairs and down. I've been to Pizza Port Carlsbad and getting food is the same process here: wait in line to order, then goto your table until they call you to pick up your food.

My wife & shared a sampler of their beers. Their APA, "Poche Pale", was a quite nice balance of hops and malt. The other brews that they had brewed on site were: an IPA ( all hop flavor, somewhat one dimensional); Norbert Doppelbock (nicely roasted malt flavor, but w/ a touch too much of hops for me); Trestles Wheat (a nice crisp German/American wheat).

Considering it was pretty busy, our food came up quickly and bar service was fast. What's particularly nice is that you can bring your kids here and have a nice brew.

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.
