Welcome to The Portrait Gallery Restaurant! This historic Matthews space has been totally renovated while keeping the charm of this one hundred year old building intact. Formerly a photography studio (and a fish store, a barber shop, and a dry cleaners!), The Portrait Gallery's owners decided to keep the most recent business' name for their new restaurant and cocktail bar and build on the history of this quaint building important to the history of Matthews since 1890. Offering small plates of locally sourced food, specialty craft cocktails and boutique wine selections, as well as locally brewed beers from Seaboard Brewing Company, The Portrait Gallery provides a unique dining experience for the region.
