Casual
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.

New at matchbox: brunchbox, our new unlimited brunch with small plates and drinks. Think: an endless selection of dishes like our avocado toast, breakfast nachos, chicken + grits and, of course, any of our small pizzas

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.

The service was excellent, as were most of the dishes we had. The spaghetti with a big meatball was strange. It had alfredo sauce on it with just a little marinara. I would not gmhave ordered this dish if I knew about the alfredo sauce. The blueberry french toast was delicious, as was the shirt rib rigatonu.

the service is above average and the food varies from good to fair. Their pizza is very good and the baby back ribs are also very good. My pasta dish was fair.
The noise level is high and they play the same sound track over and over.

Food was great. Service could be better. Waited over 20 minutes despite having a reservation. Our server was less than competent. Actually he was terrible

Again surprisingly pleased with all of our food, from the giant meatball to the salmon salads with an excellent dressing, to the chicken sandwiches. The service was excellent. Her and fruit drinks are competitively priced. My only complaint is that the price of bottled wines is way over inflated.

Brunch small plates were good but seemed pricey at $31. I guess $3 mimosa makes unlimited food brunch and 2 drinks for under $40 ok but I wasn’t drinking. My issue was the waiter was one of the most unhelpful servers. We asked about the small plates - he proceeded no extras into. We asked if we could do a la carte - he said probably fir some items and then walked away giving no info. He cane back we asked again and he said all could be done ala carte “probably “. Then didn’t give prices or say if it Gould be full size not small plate.

Rest was decent we did small plates brunch and it was filling and interesting but service really turned us off.

The Chicken Alfredo was really good and the salmon was cooked to my liking. The server was quite friendly and efficient. The amount of food is a little less than average I think but not a deal breaker. Will definitely be back!

Only go to this restaurant if you have children with you. They are everywhere and the ambiance is more of a McDonalds play area.

I was looking for a place to take my family for a brunch and was not impressed with our experience Sunday. the restaurant was almost empty and our service was very poor, the food was just ok and honestly we were disappointed. I spoke to the manager after we waited 15 m in to pay our bill and he did take a little off to make things better.
I wondered if they had a new chef because we have been there before and not felt this way.
I would not recommend the brunch.

The food was bad. Just BAD. The breading kept falling off the calamari. The fettuccini was super heavy and ended up making my husband's stomach sick. The steak salad was literally 4-5 pieces of steak thrown on some lettuce. And, although our server was wonderfully friendly, he disappeared towards the end such that it took us forever to get our bill. Oh! And, despite our reservation, it took us (and the 12 others who were freezing in the waiting area with us) nearly 20 mins to get seated. Never again.

We enjoyed a pre-valentines day lunch at this restaurant and enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent, and the food was good. We shared a pizza, and it was delicious as well as the craft beers. I will return to this restaurant again.

They were out of Baileys and Kahlua. We stopped in late night for dessert and coffee. One of our party had the spaghetti and meatball. The sauces were bland and the meatball was mushy.

Matchbox is a great place to take your family and friends. The menu has a variety of items. My wife and went with another couple. We had pizza and and a steak. The pizza was amazing and the steak was cooked perfect. The waiter paced the meal perfect and was not over bearing. I would come back again .

Great variety and good value, though if you have younger children, you will not likely get $17.50 (kids price) worth of food consumed by them unless they are big eaters or like seafood etc. It balances out in the end, however, and the options are sufficiently vast.

Service was great. Sergio was attentive and accommodating. We will be back.

The food we ordered (shrimp and grits, crab cakes, pizza) was tasty. Our waitstaff was friendly and thoughtful -- she brought pizza dough for the 7-year and 5-year olds st our table to play with! I have been eating at this Matchbox location for a while now, and it's been consistent in both food quality and service.

I would say I’ve had very mixed experiences at Matchbox. Generally the front reception staff is indifferent. Sometimes the wait staff is great and other times it has been terrible. Same with the food. The sale portions have gotten smaller.
It’s not my first choice for lunch or dinner.
