Matchbox offers fresh American inspired food and drink in a modern and eco-friendly setting. Our menu includes brick oven pizza, miniburgers, fresh seafood, and a fantastic brunch. Guests can dine on our outdoor patio in nice weather. Matchbox takes brick oven pizzas to a new level!

"When I lived in DC it was always fun to sneak over to the first Matchbox with some friends. Now that I've settled down in the 'burbs, it was nice to have a little bit of DC make it's way out to us...coolest thing is that this new location utilized some of the steel that they removed from the old Chinese grocery store they replaced at the original location. The food is just as good, and somehow they make this new space feel like your in another part of the same restaurant. We took my brother-in-law (a Matchbox newbie) so of course we started with the mini burgers...he was in heaven. The salads and pizza were excellent as usual. We will definitely be back!"

"...it's a restaurant that makes me realize how spoiled we're becoming in DC. There's nothing wrong with Station 4, it's just that the food does not stand up to its price point compared to similar restaurants in DC. Station 4 has an excellent location for folks going to Arena Stage just around the block, which is why we gave it a try. Our waiter was good, but the carafe of watered down Sangria did not taste like Sangria we've enjoyed in Barcelona, which is how it's advertised in the drink menu! We each tried the pre-theater menu, and the food was more of the same: it tasted okay, but it should taste better at this price point. I give them kudos for a visually interesting interior, and overall Station 4 is a nice addition to the Waterfront!"
