“Good pizza and beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We went there with a party of 20 or so people and were lucky enough to snag one of the large communal tables. The food came out fast and the girl taking our order was super patient with our indecisiveness (hard to order for that many people, heh). They have decent salads too that can be server vegan without the cheese. Gluten-free crust is $3 extra and only for a small pizza, and not very good, unfortunately. Vegan = order no cheese on pizza :) The custom pizzas are a bit pricey, but they really load 'em up, so it ends up being a good deal. They have a few wine options and plenty of craft beer. Noisy place with lots of kids, but it's not too bad if you're there with your own crowd anyway :) Parking is a pita, but gets easier when the nearby stores closes, so you can park in front of those.

“One of the best places for great craft beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

The pizza is ok. But, the beer selection is incredible. I have had Pliny here a number of times, including Pliny the younger! Super fair pricing as well on the craft beers. They deserve this five star review!

“Best pizza & beer place in the O.C.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This is a great place for the entire family. Great pizza, wings, and salads for everyone, Meat lover to veggies. If you want a real treat, try their beer grain crust on your next pizza. They use the used grains from their beer brewing and it adds a whole grain yummy beer taste to the pizza. This is also a microbrewery with many awards to their name. They also have other beer selections on tap, both craft beers and main stream beer. If beer is not your thing they also have wine and their own Root Beer on tap. Parking can be tricky but there is a parking lot on the roof and on the street.

“Typical pizza joint/brewery great for taking kids to”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The pizza sauce is extremely "canned tasting". But the end result has been good, not great.

The arcade - on a separate floor for those with active kids, is a Godsend for those who take their children. But the arcade can be more expensive than the pizza and beer alone! It takes. It children about 10 minutes to run through $10 in tokens. Can be a VERY expensive dinner stop; equivalent to an adult going to Vegas and playing slots while waiting for a table at a restaurant! True!!!

“The pizza was good. Great place to take my four year old!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed Pizza Port. The pizza was quite yummy - I loved the crust!! And I totally felt comfortable allowing my little girl to wander around. There were tons of children and families. The restaurant is downtown and was an easy walk after dinner to get some frozen yogurt.
