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.

Decided to try out the new bottomless brunch
The restaurant has some kinks to work out
Some of our food never showed up and some we didn’t order appeared
What we did have was tasty
The portion sizes were all over the place
The pacing was poor and while our waiter was good he was sometimes hard to locate

Love Matchbox! The cucumber jalapeño margarita is one of my favorites. I ordered the salmon, which is always perfect. We also ordered prosciutto/fig pizza and the calamari. Service was perfect as always.

We usually dine in the bar area but decided to sit in the dining room this time. Dinner was great; when asked Ana have great recommendations on what to order. We like to take our time while we eat and order as we go and are ready. We never felt rushed throughout or dinner which was nice.

Love the holiday decorations! Looks great. Sad they dont have their regular brunch menu anymore. Our table was in the corner tucked away so we were not in the main room to enjoy the ambience. The service was pleasant and accommodating but very slow... 25 mins before we got water, an hour after we got there to get food. Disappointed in that aspect.

Had lunch, good hamburger and pretty good crab cake. Went with a friend to celebrate her birthday, was asked about the occasion and hoped for a free dessert. That did not happen, had to pay for the brownies but did get a lit candle on top. Ok.

Room was a little cold when we got there. Eventually warmed up. Server was attentive, especially to my food allergies. A bit of a hard sell on gift cards, email list. A large group came in later and it got quite busy and consumed our servers attention. I had shrimp and grits which is a personal favorite and it continues to meet the mark for me. All in all, it was a good experience.

Great food and service. The calamari and crab+avo appetizers were delicious. Everyone loved their pizzas. Avoid the booths near the kitchen, lots of noise made conversation a challenge at times.

The restaurant was just okay. The servers didn't really have any personality although they were attentive. Really nothing to write home about the food. Portions were small and I thought you should get more for the prices they charged.

I usually have a great experience when dining at Matchbox for dinner. This visit was not that great. When my fiancé and I arrived for brunch on a Saturday we were told the only option was an unlimited brunch for $31.50. We could not order individual items for brunch. In the past at the Rockville, Md location this was not the case. There was a regular brunch menu that customers could order from.
I ended up ordering the shrimp and grits and the shrimp was undercooked. The waiter kindly took it off our bill as I stated I did not want anything else from the menu.
I really enjoy dining out at Matchbox and hope to have a better experience in the future.

Seating area behind the bar area is too cold, when the temperatures are ~40 deg or colder outside. That area is also isolated from the rest of the restaurant, so you don't get the same ambiance.

Only issue was the hostess took us to our table 15 minutes late so we were rushing to get set up at the same time guests were arriving. We had reservations so it should have been ready. Our waiter was excellent & did a wonderful job. Food was excellent.

the pizza was lukewarm, and my salad was overdressed. our server was also the bartender in the front bar area. I think he had too many tables to serve, so we did not see him often.

It was frustrating when we were ready to pay, he was nowhere to be found. I ended up taking the bill with our credit card to the bar area, where three team members were chatting. I gave the folio to a gentleman that appeared to be a manager (he was not in a uniform like the others). He took the check, but did not run the card, but instead put it aside for our overworked server to handle. So we ended up not saving any time.

Very nice restaurant. We were treated very well and service was great. Unfortunately, we came right after the new “bottomless brunch” was rolled out. The small plates were not really small, which created a lot of wasted food. If we had any idea of the size of each plate, fewer dishes would have been ordered. Also the food was coming out in the wrong order and some hot dishes were coming out cold. In spite of that, we will be back when the kinks are worked out.
