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 best seat in the house may be the elevated mezzanine, but everyone is treated to soaring views of the glowing wood wall, reclaimed from a New York State barn built in the early 1900’s.

Below, the bar hints at its former life as a Douglas fir, once suspended up in the 25-foot ceiling. Outside, the shaded fire pit bar is an ideal spot for drinks for you and thirteen of your friends.

Exposed pipes, warm reclaimed timber walls, cool concrete and steel make for an attractive place to gather.

My whole family loves Matchbox. We drive down there all the way from Frederick every once in awhile. Their pizza is awesome, especially love the spicy meatball which has bacon and oregano. We don’t always get dessert there but we’re pleasantly surprised by their churros, brownie sundae and banana bread pudding. Highly recommend!

Other than being flagged on open table as not showing up for our reservation, the food and service was good.

Service was fast and server was friendly and helpful. They left us alone when my friend and I lingered for conversation after our lunch was done.

Great, food, great service, beautiful, rustic-looking restaurant. There were three in my party, and we each ordered a different pizza, and all three were delicious! I'll be back again, soon!

We dined for Valentines. Our last visit was disappointing but we decided to give matchbox another try and I’m glad we did. We had a nice table, wonderful server (Stephanie) and a delicious meal. The kitchen as a little slow but that was understandable given the holiday. Stephanie was super attentive and very friendly. I loved the mini burgers and salad I ordered. My husband loved his chicken sandwich.

My good gf and I met for a late lunch. Our server and food were both amazing. Second time I've been to Matchbox, though first time to Rockville location. Both experiences were excellent. I was a bit sad that on my 2nd visit, they had taken their crave-worthy, left me salivating for days lemony mustardy salmon off the menu, but one can only pray they bring it back (or give me the recipe!!!). I highly recommend Matchbox and hope it continues its tradition of great food and service despite being a chain of sorts.

We ordered gluten-free pizza, delighted to discover there was a gluten free option available. The pizza was good!

We went there Sunday afternoon - good food and service - we were seated near a large party so noise level was a little high - but not disruptive - love this restaurant.

As usual, the food was very good, but unfortunately we had a very bad experience on this visit. We were placed in a back room behind the bar and it looked to be used for large parties. There was a very nice large group next to us, but across the way was a large group with several out of control loud small children.

We asked to be moved very early on when the noise was getting out of control, but were told there were no other tables available and there was nothing that could be done. Throughout the evening there were several times where we found our conversation more about the other table than our own. It was just not the way to spend a Saturday night out. Not sure I would return based on how the situation was handled.

Constantly cold temperatures even during winter months. Kitchen does not follow waitress instructions regarding diet. Took a long time for waitress to initially come to table. Moved us to different station.

I had a great experience at Matchbox. The food was excellent and not too expensive; the service was great; and the ambience was perfect. I had the spinach salad with grilled salmon and it was perfect. Matchbox is now one of my favorite restaurants. I highly recommend it.

Matchbox never fails to provide a good dining experience. We were seated immediately upon arrival and our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The pizza was excellent! We will definitely come here again.

I took a large group of my staff to lunch here. We had a reservation, which when I needed to change it from 4 to 8 people, the hostess was very willing and able to assist and make the change. The food was really delicious- everyone loved their entrees, and most of us had delicious leftovers.

This visit was not like in the past. My food was terrible. I ordered the Holy Grail Pizza. It arrived with the crust burnt... not light, brown... but BLACK. The basil looked like it had sat under the heating lamp for a while. It was wilted and lifeless. The sauce looked like it was dumped straight from a can of tomato paste. What also surprised me was that the restaurant was not busy. I was there on Super Bowl Sunday at 11am. The place was very quiet. Boo, Matchbox... you are better than that.
