Amazing service! Our waiter was so attentive and friendly, made our visit very enjoyable! (Didn’t remember his name, redhead with a beard). We shared a calamari appetizer and it was very good. I enjoyed the shrimp & grits appetizer portion, which was plenty for me....More

The last few times I have been to Matchbox have not been the most pleasant. Seems that this has become a haven for drunks - loud and obnoxious drunks. I like to sit at the bar. I like to have a drink. I like Matchbox...More

This is a Go-To place for us. Sunday lunches and dinners are great here. Top-notch pizzas -- the crust is delicious! -- with good variety. They're not the bready, greasy, drippy cheese-bombs of other places, but rather light, healthy and flavorful. Good selection of wines....More

Another wonderful Happy Hour experience at Matchbox. I arrived first, and my three friends staggered in over the course of the next 20 minutes. Our server, Haley kept an eye on our table, because the minute someone sat down, she was there to take drink/food...More
