Beautiful Hidden Garden

This is a lovely oasis in the middle of town. With the fountains and music playing it was a nice break from walking and shopping. It would be a wonderful venue for an event.

We were in New Bern last year for the annual Art Crawl and enjoyed stopping in at the Isaac Taylor Garden. There was a wonderful eclectic collection of art. We especially enjoyed the pottery on display. A lovely place to take a break from shopping and site seeing. Lovely home for artwork.

The Issac Taylor Garden is a nice spot to stop and take a break from everything for a little bit. I got to visit the area during the Art Walk so there are art galleries close by and live music. It was an enjoyable experience.

Their music shows are a great value for a night out or family fun. VERY affordable. The food they serve is only okay but affordable, filing and an easy grab. Cheap beer.

I have attended a few music events at the Isaac Taylor Garden. I really like the venue! They have a cool grassy area where you can bring a blanket and enjoy the great atmosphere. They hang little chinese rice laterns and strung the old timey light bulb strings of lights. I attended a live show in June 2015 and in... More

The food is good too. Friday night was a frog stranglers so I waited out the rain storm on the back porch with the cheese and fruit plate. I made a sandwich of the assorted cheeses, good crusty bread drizzled with a flavored oils. There was an intimate feeling and a gladness of comrade tie between artists in spite of... More
