“A bar that serves Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Pizza Port is more of a bar that serves Pizza than a family pizza place. A lot of families do come here, but it's loud, crowded, and often filled with the inebriated.
The food is good, but a bit pricey, and as they are always crowded, can be a bit of a wait. But it's very worth it for a fun night out with friends!
It's also hard to find seating, but once you have a spot, you're good until the beer runs dry.

“Ridiculous crowds...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

But that's part of the atmosphere. Great pizza and beer...just plan on making new friends with the people on your left, right and across the table. :-)

“Fun, loud, tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Order in (or take out). Large pizza variety. Generous portions. Big selection of on-tap beers. Helpful, friendly bartenders. But it is loud and crowded both times we went. Still got good seating and service.

“If you miss, you miss big...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Pizza Port has some of the best pizza and wings on the West Coast. They also have a gazillion different beers on tap including their own brews. The Chronic and Shark Bite brews are great and the Insane Hot Wings are really good and won't kill your mouth despite the name. Great environment.

“Great Beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

A must do if you like great local microbrews. They have rotating taps with their own brews and other microbrews. The place is always packed, and their is always a line to buy beer. The tables seem full, but we never have a problem finding a place to sit in time to eat. The pizza is just OK, but you come for the beer and atmosphere.
