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.

    Food was overcooked badly and dried out. Specifically, hamburger ordered medium rare came well done. Fried shrimp was dry and tough. Food took a long time to come, although we were practically the only people in the place. The waiter was very pleasant and apologized; it seemed a kitchen issue, not a waiter issue. It was the 4th of July. Backup staff? If the restaurant is open on a holiday, it should know that people want a decent experience. Of course they want that anytime, but particularly on a holiday. We’ve had good experiences at Matchbox before, and we hope to again. A repeat performance of the 4th will have us looking elsewhere.

    We had a nice long lunch on the patio. A man came by twice begging for money. We reported this after the first time to the waiter who said he would let the manager know. However, the man came by a second time, and no one paid attention.

    The food and service was really good. I was surprised nothing was not done for a birthday celebration with no one ordering dessert. We also weren’t able to get the happy hour pricing because we didn’t sit at the bar. They were very accommodating. Thank you!

    I selected the calamari and a pizza margherita. I respectively found them bland and spongy. My wife likes mixed salad and found none (salad on the menu included meat items). She ate the crab cakes and they were good. But, at $39, this entree looked overpriced (the online menu of Matchbox Rockville shows them at $34?). No problem with the service. As for the ambiance, the big room with high ceiling and brick walls makes you feel you eat in a warehouse. It may fit well the younger generation's taste but, both elders, we concluded Matchbox was not for us.

    I've been coming to this location for almost a decade, and I've never been disappointed but last night was a mixed bag. I am not sure if the kitchen was understaffed or if our server was having an off night. My reservation was for 6pm. We were seated promptly; it wasn't crowded at all as it was a Monday. Our server came over, took our order and the appetizer came out in a timely manner but from then on, it was very spotty. Our server didn't check on us much to see if we needed anything and it got to a point where we were sitting there with our leftovers all ready to go but no one in site to even ask for a check. We didn't get out until around 8:05pm and my reservation was for 6. I've never had this happen before so I am going to call this one a one-off. We come to this Matchbox all the time and hope you will be back to your usual self the next time.

    Went to Sunday brunch for Father’s Day. We were seated immediately since we had reservations. Our server was kind and prompt. The options were brunch buffet for everyone (family of 5) or order off the menu (you can’t do a mix of menu and buffet). We opted for buffet. Bad idea. Food selection was not very good and the quality of the food was subpar. And it was expensive @$35/person. Definitely should have opted to eat off the menu. Haven’t eaten anything but pizza here before, and it was excellent. Thought we would try something different. Sadly disappointed and out a nice chunk of cash. Pizza? Strong yes. Brunch Buffet? Hard pass.

    Shrimp appetizer was good. Drinks were fair. Poke salad was disappointing. Crab cake sandwich was so poor in quality that I don't plan to come back for another meal at this place after many prior dinners. Come on guys. Get your act together.

    Matchbox was a very enjoyable, moderately-priced, informal but extremely attractive, dining experience. Tables were very well spaced out. It is a plus to see a menu that has both brunch and lunch items. My co-diner had some dietary issues and asked for substitutions that were accommodated without hesitation. I will return to Matchbox and am happy to recommend it.

    The restaurant itself is really cool. It's architecturally interesting with several different dining areas to suit just about anyone's taste. When we entered the restaurant, the piped in music was far too loud to conduct any sort of conversation. So we chose the outdoor dining. It was the perfect spot. Despite being only 100 ft from Rockville Pike, there was a high brick wall separating the outdoor dining from the parking lot and the highway. And there was a roof over the outdoor dining that for noise abatement as well as variations in weather and sun was a really great spot to eat. The food was very good, albeit a bit pricey. I had the crab cakes that were $39. I know the price of crab now is quite high and to their credit. While the crab cakes were on the small side, there was an abundance of very large chunks of crab. My negative comment is that I can't understand why the serving of coleslaw was so small. This comment is not unique to matchbox. The serving of fries was in my opinion and for my appetite spot on. Typically restaurants provide far too many french fries yet underserved on the coleslaw which cost next to nothing. My wife had the grilled chicken avocado sandwich and the kitchen neglected to put the avocado on. However, once she realized it our server, Joshua was quick to address it. And Josh was very attentive and very personable.

    After seeing pictures on Instagram and we decided to give brunch a shot. Unfortunately it was very disappointing. And extremely overpriced for what we had and what was available. Definitely not worth spending almost $200 for four people at a barely mediocre brunch.

    It was a horrible experience. Food was mediocre at best, very dry dehydrated food (pancakes, potato hash, etc). Service was the worst, even though it was buffet style and self serve, we had to ask 4 different staff member for our server and waited over 30 mins. Our group had to stand up and go over to the host stand where we had to wait some more for our server to give us our check. I came to enjoy a birthday brunch meal but it was absolutely terrible. Would never recommend

    The food was not ready, the brunch buffet was still being set up when we arrived. Our server Gustav was the only polite person in the place. We waited for items to be set up, food was pretty good. When it was time to pay, I had a $50 gift card that I had recieved from BMW dealership across the street for purchasing a car. I wanted to use it as a credit. The manager proceeased the card wrong and had an attitude because I wanted to use it and somehow his machine processed it wrong. I checked the balance and the problem was on matchboxes end. The manager- Antonio - got loud as if I was wrong, and said that the machine couldnt be wrong; but he'd check the card again. After he checked, He had Gustav come back to tell me I was right, and gave me the correct charged balance on my personal card. He made no apology, and said nothing after. Poor customer service on the managers end. I would not recommend this location

    Gone to several Matchbox’s but this was the worst. Food was extremely slow. Ordered calarmari and after waiting 12 min was told the kitchen was out of it. Ordered dynamite shrimp and had to send it back because it was extremely salty. Waited about 40 min for entrees to come out (just pizza). Waitress was friendly and responsive- kitchen was just extremely slow
