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.

We did not stay. They refused to serve alcohol to family members in town for a funeral. They are 21 and 25 years old but because their out of state drivers license had a vertical photo they refused to accept the ID. First the manager said it was a law that they could not accept it and when challenged they then changed their reason and said it was corporate policy. Our group left and went to another local restaurant that had no problem accepting g the valid ID.

Our sever forgot about us. Our food took for ever to make it to our table and they did not seem that busy. Maybe they are understaffed but it would have been nice If the server had tried a little harder. We normally go to one Loudoun but now this location is closer. We may drive to Ashburn next time.

Food was way over priced for what you get. I understand restaurants were closed because of Covid bt you should not try and make it up through price gauging for what you receive.

Great waitress and hostess! Unfortunately the clients need to be told to keep their masks on and not get up and go around the restaurant without one...even kids. Made my experience a bit stressful. The avo/crab omelette lacked any seasoning. It was the egg/egg product that was bland to both the taste and the eye. You may want to check that product out as I am sure there are better ones you can use. I love your food so this was surprising. I’ll be back this week for another try though. My friends and I really do love you!!

Socially distanced and still good. We had multiple waiters making sure that everything was perfect. I miss the vibe from the old set-up (pre-pandemic) but they still have great food and drinks even with capacity limits.

Once again, Matchbox hit a home run. Of course, the meal was delicious. But our waitress was more than fabulous. As busy as she was, she provided perfect customer service, a wonderful personal touch, and a smile that could not be hidden under her mask. You made our day! Thanks!

Thanks to Matchbox for keeping its restaurant open. My wife enjoyed her crab cake and the minestrone soup (they first brought the wrong soup...). I had some tuna tacos and found the tuna largely missing. Then I had a steak-frites and was stunned to see the frites seasoned with parmigiano cheese. The waiter had a hard time opening the bottle of wine and later vanished: one of his colleague came to take out our plates and bring up the cheque. Sorry to say that the dinner was forgettable. I am sure Matchbox can do better in normal times.

Great spot for outdoor eating. Staff and managers are well trained and pleasant. The food is always good at this Rockville Matchbox restaurant! Not so much at others. Hope they can get outdoor heaters so I can continue to go as it gets colder!

Went and needed to sit outside. They had my reservation and I didn't have any problem changing. The waiters were very attentive. They all wore masks and had gloves on.
