“Great local pizza place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pizza Port is a laid back place for delicious pizza, salads, and beer. They apparently brew their own beer, but we don't drink, so I can't comment on it. It did look like lots of people were enjoying it. We got a margharita pizza and it was fantastic. The crust was flavorful and soft and it tasted so fresh. As others have mentioned there are games for the kids and tvs. It is not a fancy place by any means, so don't bother dressing up. :) it's got a great atmosphere, so it's loud....not very conducive to conversation. It is in a bit of a seedy neighborhood (compared to La Jolla or Liberty Station which we have frequented). But we were able to park in the back very easily.

“A Pizza Port In A Storm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

Pizza Port Ocean Beach (PPOB) was the first official stop during my recent trip to SDBW 2012. It is a medium sized venue, a single room containing several rows of communal tables where beer geek and family meet. It is light and airy with a slightly rustic decor to it. The small bar is to the left upon entry. There is a counter for ordering the delicious PPOB craft brews adjacent to counters where hungry patrons can order food - which I did not try given a giant enchilada lunch at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Old Town San Diego (at which time I also quaffed a Ballast Point Yellowtail Ale.)

The beer is great; during my visit, the following were greatly enjoyed: Dandy IPA, Shark Bite, Tarantulas and ABLE stout. In fact, the Dandy cask blew and the attentive bartender gave it to me on the house. (Oh, if more kegs would blow!)

PPOB is the definitive beer bar: great quaffs, non-pretentious environment where everyone can enjoy themselves; plus, it is a block from the mighty Pacific.

It is also accesible to Bus 35 from Old Town. One down ...

“Great Beer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

It's called Pizza Port....but its all about the beer. Great selection of local handcrafted beer on tap! Picnic style tables and ok pizza and other items. Staff very friendly...great for beer with the guys or the entire family. Did I mention the beer? Always new beers to try...each trip there seems to offer something new to enjoy. Love this place!

“Fabulous pizza and great beers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

Thank you trip advisor, we tried this because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. Such a great selection of beers and a feeling that if we asked about the beers the servers would be able to advise on each one! The pizzas were superb. Tasty and delicious. The place was jumping and service was quick and fast. A great experience.

“GREAT beers!”

We really enjoyed A LOT of these beers, and we went to many local breweries. Definitely one of the best stouts I've ever had and the pizza was darn good too :)
