If you've been to one Pizza Port you've practically been to all of them. It's a very family friendly brew pub/pizza joint. This place isn't filled with your run of the mill stinky OB locals, which is very nice. Standing in line and ordering beer has never been a favorite past-time of mine, but it makes sense given the set up. You had better have your ID though, because they do not joke about that! You'll sit down family style and usually get to have a conversation with some pretty interesting folks. If you're in the mood for a pretty good pizza and very good beer this is definitely a place you should check out.

As soon as I walked I knew this was going to be worth my while. Rows of community tables and pretty busy for a Wednesday evening. Easy to read and understand menu and it was hard to decide on a pizza. The staff was very friendly and patient. On to the beer...the bartender was again very patient and easy to work with. He walked us through some samples and poured a variety before we picked a pitcher.
Great place. I wish I could have stomached more beer and pizza. I was just too full.

Overall this is my favorite location Pizza Port has. They have a large dining area that displays their brewery and is very open which is nice when you have little runts running around! This is our fail safe pizza place and is always on point with diverse beer selections. Service has been a bit slow a time or two but I cant complain too much, They are always busy and theres a reason why. Kid friendly is a huge plus!

One of my favorite places in Ocean Beach.
Came in just to try some beers. A lot of beers brewed right there and only on draft there. The staple pizza port beers were on the guest taplist.
Bartenders were very accomodating and gave me samples of just about anything I wanted to try. After a half pour of my choice the keg was empty and I got the half glass of beer for free. The bar tender was quick to give me more advice on stuff I might like.
The place was jumpin'around dinner time and it was very busy and a bit loud but it didn't seem disturbing. Kinda fits Ocean Beach and the whole vibe it has going on.
I went here more than once during my Ocean Beach visit and there was something new to drink every day.
I love this place!

This is one excellent place. Only visited once since it's pretty far from my home but would love to come back. Ocean Beach in SD has a very relaxing and bohemian vibe and I just love the atmosphere of this Pizza Port.
They made a lot of beers, just go look at their listing and they come up with new beers all the times. All the beers I had were good, so go with an empty stomach it's not easy to have 6-7 pints of their selections when go there, plus the guest beers.
Lots of parents bring their kids here, very noisy. A very rowdy place but nice people. Probably my favourite bar in SD aside Toronado.

OB Pizza Port rules!!!!
Their growler prices suck, yes, but thier beer is nice and hoppy. They also, like all pizza ports, have many guest beers on tap. Sometimes its very crowded but the amazing staff expidites it quickly and friendily. Peace Out.

My wife and I recently went to Pizza Port on our vacation to San Diego. It was our first official stop.
A = Nice overall atmosphere with beer hall, bench seating. We were there on a Saturday night and the place was packed. There were people circling tables to get a seat. Crowd was a mix of young, surfer crowd and families.
Q = Service was mixed. In regard to our food order, everyone was very friendly and the food was ready quickly. However, on the beer ordering side, I didn't not find the bartender helpful. There are probably about 20 taps, about half their beer and half rotating drafts, mostly local. I decided to try a sampler of their beers and asked for a few recommendations. I know what I like, but I also like to try local beers that are popular. I was told one beer wasn't more well known or popular than the others. Not really a big deal, I made my own choices, but she could have easily been more helpful.
S = Selection was great for me. I wanted to try some of their beers and some other locals and that is precisely what they had on tap. If you are looking for selection besides locals, then this will not be your best bet.
F = Food was good. We shared a Caesar salad, some of their beer buddies and a small pizza. Caesar salad was solid for a pizza place, it was nice to see some green in the romaine lettuce, instead of the seemingly only white pieces you get from people that use pre-packaged lettuce. Beer buddies are basically cheese bread and although delicious, taste like most of the cheese bread you've had. Pizza was good but, nothing you couldn't live without.
V = Good value. The food and sampler, pints were all reasonably priced.
Overall, a nice place to stop in San Diego. It's a good place to grab some quality pints and pizza and then walk over to the nearby beach or build up an appetite at the beach and walk over for a few you pints and some pizza.

Very cool open beachfront community atmosphere here. Came in during a slow weekday afternoon and had a couple of beers with the wife before wandering down to the beach to watch the sunset. Then wandered back over to the bar for more beers and pizza. The crowd steadily picked up as the after work folks started coming in and filling it up.
Beer selection was large and local. Lots of real small local beers represented on tap and it was nice to get to try some of San Diego's lesser known but still delicious beers. The pizza came out quickly and didn't disappoint. This was a fun and not really planned out stop during my beer trip. If you're in Ocean Beach, give it a try.

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 ...

My wife and I were recommended this location over the other Pizza Ports in San Diego. Cute place. Roomy inside with Oktoberfest-style seating. Walk up order windows--one for food only and the other for beer and food. The service, in true San Diego fashion, was friendly, helpful, patient, and accommodating. The young woman who helped me seemed like she really enjoyed her job and really loved their brews. The gentlemen using the PA to announce when orders were up made it fun. My wife and I sat outside on the sidewalk patio. It's a little tighter fit out there, but still, relatively roomy. Flights were available of all the Pizza Port brews--of which there are several on tap. The BBQ chicken pizza was amazing. The soft pretzel was described to me by my wife as, "not very good." How can you beat a place that offers a friendly atmosphere, an opportunity to sit in the sun (or shade), drink some magnificent beer, and have a great pizza? This would be an every Saturday afternoon place for me if I lived in this neighborhood.
