“Good pizza in a very active place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

The location is great- except you have to either luck out or be patient when it comes to finding parking. Big plus- parking is free! The large tables are fantastic if you have a large group to eat with (which we did), and the place felt like it was alive the entire time we were there. It's a good place for kids whose attention spans are short, because there was so much to see (and hear!) that they were never bored. Kind of hard to have a lengthy conversation there, since they're constantly calling out names on the loudspeaker, but otherwise, a fun place!

“Loud, obnoxious and fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Communal tables, a loud speaker telling you when food is done, surfboards hanging from the rafters and rock or punk playing overhead. It works. It is a local favourite in Carlsbad Village but don't just go for the ambience the pizza and on site brewed beer and fantastic, the staff are friendly and down to earth too.
At first I was reluctant as it just seemed so "full on" but thats what makes it such a great place

“Local Favorite”
5 of 5 stars 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 stars 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!
