Bubbling, thin crust pizzas, mini burgers, crisp salads, and craft cocktails...four great reasons to visit matchbox today. We’re the neighborhood gathering place for fun, upscale casual dining, with local, award-winning beers, broad spectrum wines, and handcrafted signature cocktails you won’t find anywhere else.

A titan of a space, Rockville was modeled after a hunting lodge yet still manages to feel cozy. A comfortable fireplace fills the space, as well as two wood-fired ovens that churn out thin-crust pizzas in minutes. With two outdoor patios and the private 30-seat Congressional Room, there’s plenty of space for intimate dinners, large parties and get-togethers.

    Been at MB twice over the past 3 days. Saturday was a bar experience and Sunday, 2/25 was brunch with my wife and 92 year old Mom. Both were excellent. Iliya, Chris and Josh were excellent bartenders/services both days. Thanks Matchbox.

    I was disappointed that our seat for a reservation was upstairs across from the kitchen. When I voiced my displeasure the hostess then marched us downstairs to discuss with another hostess who assigned us a table back up stairs. I asked for a booth which we passed an empty booth to get to the second table. I eventually spoke to the waitress who said we could sit there. So we went to 3 locations climbing up and down 15 steps. Not ideal at my age. Food was good but my drinks were awful. Tried two finally gave up.

    We haven’t been to Matchbox since 2018-2019 , so we bought out kids to enjoy & we are glad we came back . Tried the chicken pesto pizza ( AMAZINGGGGG ) the old bay wings were so bomb with the ranch sauce I believe & my 4 yr old loved her personal cheese pizza. Thank you all.

    I asked for a table in a non- draftee/ non cold air area but it still seems that we ended up in a wide open/high ceiling area. I feeds the host did not truly understand the request. Table location could have been better. My Brunch meal nice (Breakfast Scramble) and I would order again minus the breakfast potatoes were too salty. Even my guest said the same. I am sodium sensitive but we he said his were salty too, I knew I wasn’t making it up. Will remember next time I will try brunch again but with a different menu selection..

    The food gave us heartburn. The calamari was definitely frozen and tasted horrible. The salmon and lentils had some weird vinegar sauce in it. I powered through because I was hungry. This was my 1st time visiting this location. Very disappointing. Our waiter, Roberto was cool and responsive.

    Last few times we have been there the service has been very slow. Always friendly and nice but servers disappear for extended periods and food takes a long time come out. Food itself is generally fine for what you’re paying for, but is not consistent.

    The kitchen lost our ticket so we waited almost an hour after ordering for our meal. In addition to that, the server was inattentive so she didn’t even realize we hadn’t received our food. We ordered coffee with cream. They didn’t have half n half so they gave us milk. On the second cup, the server brought us some “different” milk that turned out to be spoiled. I will say the manager came to our table and he would up comping our meal but overall, it was not a good experience.

    Sliders are a specialty of the establishment but when we tried to order, we were informed that they had totally run out of meat! No real apologies just a statement of the fact and what else would you like to order!

    Dinner was just ok. My salad was supposed to come with dressing on the side. I did get dressing on the side, but the salad was also drenched with dressing. (I didn't bother to complain to the server-who never asked if everything was ok.) The pizza was just ok. The pasta was just ok-we didn't even take the leftovers home, that tells you how good it was. Our sever was very mediocre.

    This place is our go-to for a relaxing evening out, either with friends or just the 2 of us. Comfortable seating indoors and outdoors in the summer. Not too fancy, just great food and a real, relaxing, neighborhood vibe. We’ve been coming here regularly since the place was built it seems.

    Met my girlfriends to celebrate one of their birthdays. We had a ball. Our waiter was very attentive - superb service. Sat by the fireplace on a cold and dreary day. That created a warm and cozy feel. The food was excellent. No complaints from any of us. I had the ribs. OMG melt in your mouth. A great experience all around. Thank you!

    Matchbox is one of my favorite restaurants, although in recent years, the quality of the food has dwindled in recent years. The restaurant seems to be having trouble in getting the crust right. Sometimes when we go, the crust is burnt, and sometimes, like yesterday, the crust is barely cooked enough. The sauce has also changed a lot and has minimal flavor now. The chain has moved to spicy peperoni, which is fine, but it seems they think that will make up for the lacking sauce, which is does not. The pizza is not nearly as good as it used to be and that is disappointing.

    We went for New Year's Day brunch. Food was good, with the exception of my husband's eggs. They were the "carton" eggs and he could tell by the texture right away. But our waiter Jason was great, and took them back and asked the kitchen to make him soft scrambled eggs with real eggs that they had to crack! LOL They came out perfectly. Jason was AMAZING! Warm, great personality and very attentive. We had an early brunch time at 11:30 AM, so it was pretty quiet. We enjoyed the quieter ambiance this time. Will visit again, but the energy of the location at One Loudon has a little edge on Rockville.

    We came Matchbox during brunch. They had breakfast and lunch offerings. One half of the party ordered Pizzas and salads and the other half ordered breakfast food. The pizzas had a nice thin crust and plenty of toppings. The salads were a good size, but could have used a touch more dressing.

    After arriving on time I was seated and gave my order when the waiter came. After 40 minutes and seeing another couple that was seated 10 minutes after me receive their appetizer and dinner, my daughter and I decided to leave. Because we had tickets to a concert, chick fil a was all the time we had. This was not my first time eating at this Matchbox.

    If there is one thing we can count on in our little corner of the world is that Matchbox will be memorable in every way. The food is always outstanding whether it’s a few appetizers, pizza or an entree. Last night we tried the crab artichoke dip and seared scallops dish and both were excellent. Service is always very good.
