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 really good but the server was slow to take our order and bring out our food. However, the hostess were nice and quick to seat my party. The restaurant also had a nice aesthetic and an eye catching layout.

The Saturday brunch buffet was overpriced for the quality of the food. Also, there were no health restrictions in place, no food guards or shields, the hot food (waffles) was cold, salad bowls were mediocre. The hostess did not offer regular menu but the server asked if we wanted to see it with the caution that chef's ability to cook other dishes was limited.
I would not recommend the weekend brunch.

The food and service were good except our waiter did not ask us if we wanted dessert. We did and so we had to call him back over since he already left the check on the table. He was very friendly and had the orders put in quickly but he should have asked if we wanted to see a dessert menu. Otherwise everything was delicious.

Was out of several wine choices on a Friday evening. Could not do Happy Hour at the table for a large party. Took 2 of the most popular food items off the menu. Very disappointed.

I made a reservation for 1:30 PM for a party of 7 people.. But at the last minute I found out, it would be 2 more...so I told the hostess that it would be 2 more people.. I got to Matchbox at 1:25 and because I added 2 more people, I had to wait till 2PM!

Then some beers were ordered, and 10 minutes went by before they told us, they did not have them... To order another ...

Food was delicious as usual....

This was the second weekend brunch we attended.The food is delicious and plentiful.It feels like we are on vacation for 2 hours.I ate a bagel with lox and a veggie omelette made by the omelette chef.I also had a salad with the most delicious balsamic dressing.I also had 2 slices of fabulous chicken pesto pizza.My wife had a biscuit with sausage gravy and some grits with sausage gravy.She said it was the best sausage gravy since her Grandma’s sausage gravy.She also had French Toast with syrup and fresh strawberries and blueberries.That’s the beauty of the weekend brunch.There is something delicious for every taste

This buffet is different than the brunch option previously offered. I loved parts of both. Perhaps both options could be offered in the future. I left loving the breadth of flavors offered, and completely satisfied.

Brunch is a buffet, not the experience listed on Open Table. Host Samuel went above and beyond in apologizing for the inconsistency, personally walking us over to see the buffet and offering the menu as an alternative. We did stick with the buffet snd the food was tasty and hot though the menu is a little basic. Server Danny was a great sport who did his best to be friendly and appropriately chatty while keeping our bottomless mimosas filled.

Nice booth. The fries were cold and unappetizing. The sandwich was cold. The pizza was dried out and cold. The coke seemed like watered down .
Never like this before. Surely Next time it will be better.
It’s the people you’re with, not the food.

We did not know that this restaurant stopped serving breakfast Ala cart and is only serving branch. It’s definitely overpriced, omelette didn’t taste good and the rest of the food was so- so. It used to be the place for us to go for breakfast with our kids and parents but we are not coming back. For $200 breakfast for 5 people we definitely will go to “ First Watch “ and will get a much better quality and fresher and healthier meal. Service was very attentive.

All in all it was a good meal but I certainly didn’t think it was worth $32 a person. Nor did I think that a glass of orange juice will cost over five dollars.

Had to switch tables because of the noise level - several people at the next table were watching videos! Then they started a FaceTime session. Not sure what happened but my go to place is no longer on my list. At all.

Pizza is always good. I was a bit disappointed because we were told the outside seating area was closed when there was clearly people dining outside. Not sure what that was about but overall it was an okay dining experience.
