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.

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.
