Matchbox is a great place for groups that don't always like the same food. Great beer and cocktails, a diverse salad menu, popular pizzas, good meat and fish. Yummy desserts. Good size servings. This is one of our go to places. You can always find something good to eat or drink! It gets crowded, but the waits aren't terrible.

We hadn't been here for a while. Came for a weekday lunch, but still needed a reservation! Good salads and pizza. Emmanuel was a very personable server.

Have been to Matchbox many times over the years...I'm not a huge fan of their pizza but their sliders are amazing!!! With a huge pile of onion straws on top. Soooo good. This visit I had the crispy half chicken with asparagus and mashed potatoes and everything was cooked just right. Really good meal!!! :-)

Matchbox has the best pizza! It's thin crust, crispy, and delicious.I've been here many times and their menu has changed, but always for the better. I can honestly say I've always had a good experience here. The service is always great whether you're seated at a table or at the bar/high top seating. Their brunch is also good, too. Of... More

I took a group of 12 here for dinner on a business trip. The service was good as was the food. Prices are reasonable and the ambiance is fine. I would recommend this for a reasonably priced chain experience.

Foods okay but overpriced, Ambiance is active and fun but way too loud to carry on a reasonable conversation. Rockville Pike area has too many other choices to hurry back.

The food is delicious. The atmosphere is great. If you're going with a family of 4 or 5, just be aware that this is a little more pricy than some other local area restaurants.

...literally. I met my husband here And we had our wedding reception here & multiple gatherings/parties/celebrations. The atmosphere is what reeled me in and the food kept me. The drinks are on point and I love the matchbox punch. Occasionally they have rice balls which always aren't listed on the menu but when I ask for them, they have them... More

This location has a full menu, unlike the one near Verizon Center which has a more limited Bistro menu. Two things to NOT miss, try the Kale Caesar, and the hot artichoke and spinach dip. OMG. The bread that comes with it.....to die for. I could have made a whole meal just on those two items. The pizza was yummy... More

The food is okay. It has a limited menu and a little pricy. The service is okay, but a little to reserved.
