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.

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.

    Good basic food; for a restaurant that advertises pizza, the crust was premade and the pizza was just OK. Better items on the menu to choose from. Salmon Salad was delicious Ahi Tuna Salad had too much marinade on the tuna.

    Not what it used to be... Prior to the pandemic, I used to go to Matchbox all the time. However, it is not what it used to be. I generally don't have a problem with a limited menu but this was too limited if you don't eat pork....and substitutions were not generally available. Also, to be a Pizza Bistro, their cheese pizza was just sad...not very flavorful and the cheese just tasted cheap. The pan seared scallops dish was decent but the scallops were way overcooked.

    It was supper expensive for that low quality of food and level of restaurant. It’ 3 start restaurant with 5 star cost. Stake was very overcooked and bad. They were out on half of the desert menu of 4 item. Just 2 item was available. Over all never going back.

    Manager sat us without brunch menus for Easter brunch. Table was right next to an open wait station that was filthy and in disarray, complete with half-eaten food the staff was consuming. Waiter was polite and attentive but also inexperienced and didn’t know the brunch menu. Food was good but prices have gone up significantly. There’s no way you can convince me that it’s appropriate to charge someone $17 for 3 sliders. Pricing is worse than a ballpark. I had a $20 burger but at least it came with fries.

    Our first time and it wasn’t not bad, although I will say for the price of my meal it could’ve been more of and our food came out warm(was cold fast). Took a little while before we were greeted by a waiter. Overall the place was nice.

    The restaurant is huge & has a great vibe. There were only three tables seated when we arrived for brunch yet they brought us the worst table in the entire place. Upstairs, in a corner, right up against the server station. 40 open tables & that’s where you seat us?! Shameful. Ordered sausage patties - was brought links (they ran out of patties so substituted without checking first). They were flavorless. Didn’t even eat them. Smothered chicken biscuits brunch entree was great. Nothing special about the pancakes/eggs brunch entree. Best part was the potatoes. Overall not impressed enough to go back.

    Have been to a different Matchbox before and had a great experience, but this was unfortunately not similar. Usually love a nice booth in a bar atmosphere but this bar had very little atmosphere and VERY bright lighting. Was expecting a great wine selection at a place like this but that, too, unfortunately, was VERY limited, out of wine we wanted so had to choose another red wine, which were incredibly higher priced. We shared a pizza, split a salad and each had 2 glasses of wine and our bill was $157 before tip- yikes! Not worth it and unfortunately don’t plan to return.

    The food at Matchbox is always great and nicely proportioned and presented. The service is not always great. The wait-staff is pleasant but not always attentive. We waited a long time for refills on our beverages and for condiments.

    I was disappointed that our seat for a reservation was upstairs across from the kitchen. When I voiced my displeasure the hostess then marched us downstairs to discuss with another hostess who assigned us a table back up stairs. I asked for a booth which we passed an empty booth to get to the second table. I eventually spoke to the waitress who said we could sit there. So we went to 3 locations climbing up and down 15 steps. Not ideal at my age. Food was good but my drinks were awful. Tried two finally gave up.

    We haven’t been to Matchbox since 2018-2019 , so we bought out kids to enjoy & we are glad we came back . Tried the chicken pesto pizza ( AMAZINGGGGG ) the old bay wings were so bomb with the ranch sauce I believe & my 4 yr old loved her personal cheese pizza. Thank you all.

    I asked for a table in a non- draftee/ non cold air area but it still seems that we ended up in a wide open/high ceiling area. I feeds the host did not truly understand the request. Table location could have been better. My Brunch meal nice (Breakfast Scramble) and I would order again minus the breakfast potatoes were too salty. Even my guest said the same. I am sodium sensitive but we he said his were salty too, I knew I wasn’t making it up. Will remember next time I will try brunch again but with a different menu selection..

    The food gave us heartburn. The calamari was definitely frozen and tasted horrible. The salmon and lentils had some weird vinegar sauce in it. I powered through because I was hungry. This was my 1st time visiting this location. Very disappointing. Our waiter, Roberto was cool and responsive.

    The kitchen lost our ticket so we waited almost an hour after ordering for our meal. In addition to that, the server was inattentive so she didn’t even realize we hadn’t received our food. We ordered coffee with cream. They didn’t have half n half so they gave us milk. On the second cup, the server brought us some “different” milk that turned out to be spoiled. I will say the manager came to our table and he would up comping our meal but overall, it was not a good experience.
