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 food was great; however the server took a while to get our pizza. She said it was burnt so she had it re-done waited too long for the pizza to finally arrive (almost over an hour).

Very rude servers and very bad service. Avoid the place if possible. Many other similar places around with better service experience.

The food was phenomenal as was our waiter. Normally it would have been 5 stars but you lost two stars because the mini trio appetizer was not on the menu - a HUGE bummer because it was SO good!

My friend and I enjoyed items from the standard brunch menu. It was tasty! My only complaint is that the server (not our waiter) who brought out our order placed it in front of customers at a different table. Then when she brought it to us, she mixed up the orders. I think it's careless of the kitchen and waitstaff.

Another great meal at Matchbox! We were a bit late for our reservation because the massages were scheduled beforehand were delayed, but they still sat us right away. Food was delicious and service great.

There were a couple of areas that could have been better. The sauce on the tuna tacos was HOT HOT - too spicy. We only got bread when we asked for it - it was not offered nor on the menu. My salmon & spinach salad was excellent. Maybe we should have ordered pizza??

Matchbox in Rockville seems to be past its prime. My pizza was lukewarm when I got it - too warm to send back but not warm enough to be really good. The flavor was ordinary - nothing special. My wife got tuna salad and thought the portion was too small for the money. I used to think Matchbox was a treat for which I would be willing to stand in line. No longer. (There was no line on Sunday night.)

The service is great, I was here for date night and the food was good. The pizza in my opinion was a bit too thin. But the pear salad was good. My fiance enjoyed the barbecue burger.

Here is the thing, Matchbook the first few years was AMAZING! the food, ambiance everything. But as most restaurants do, quality tends to slow down if there is too much competition around. The one pizza i use to get was fig and Prosciutto....years ago, it looked and tasted like a brick oven pizza, fresh and covered in arugula, now; much, much different, more like a regular pizza with literally 6 sprigs of arugula, with 6 chunks of fig.....they were out of Chardonnay, and the lights were so dim in the bar area i couldn't even see the person in front of me. This has been the case the last two time I've been in the last 2 years! come back old Matchbox!! Oh but salad was amazing so i will recommend for that!

Good food and service. Overall experience was good. A lot of echo and pretty loud. The waiter didn’t know the price of one of the specials, which ended up being much higher than his guess.

I love Matchbox. We go all the time, and normally have a good experience. Last night was the exception. The service was very bad and slow. And they got our pizza order wrong. We would have mentioned that to the waitress had she actually come by to ask.

Waited 20 min before server came to table and 30 min wait for food we saw other tables get quick service and food before our family did and we had 2 toddlers as well and noting was expedited except for drinks. I expected much better service for the amount of guest that was in the restaurant, overall a very unacceptable Sunday evening at Matchbox

i have eaten here many times, and hung out at the bar. no complaints there. i recently went for brunch with my family. the regular menu is available, but the brunch is $31, unlimited food for 2 hours. small plates, and you check off the items on a list, like at dim sum. the items on the brunch menu were good. the only problem is that none of those items are available on the regular menu. the Walk of Shame breakfast burrito (small plate on the brunch menu) is no longer on the main menu. Good food, just not worth $31. Matchbox, you should at least have a couple brunch items on the main menu.
