“Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

If you are looking for a relaxing meal in a quiet restaurant, don't go here. If you want a taste of a great local hangout that's noisy, crowded and chaotic, this is the place. Pizza is excellent and loaded. They also have one of the best draft beer selections around and each Pizza Port brews their own beer plus another 20 or so from other craft breweries.

“Best Pizza Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Pizza Port, in Carlsbad, is big and loud but definitely worth the dining experience. Not only do they have the BEST pizza I've ever had (try the chicken with bbq) but they have a great selection of micro brewed beer. Fun place, give it a try!

“Loud and crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Usually a packed restaurant means it has great food. Not in this case. I know it's an "establishment" in Carlsbad but the pizza isn't really anything to write home about. It's loud, crowded, cheap, and had family style tables. If you like beer then bingo, lots of different and interesting titles on tap. Next door is a store (odd hours) that sells over 200 single beers for the hop connoisseur.

“The whole family loves this place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Pizza Solana has clams, thats hard to find, & Pizza Laguna has artichokes, another fav, but they are ALL excellent. Fresh rootbeer a must too. It is loud & often packed, but don't let that stop you. Squeeze in where you can & enjoy!
