As the owner of Chef T’s Garden Grill, I am both proud and humbled to share the history and tradition of our location. The restaurant is set in the remarkable Chiles house in Lakeland, FL, a beautiful home filled with generations of one family’s love and memories. Chef Doner has always cherished the feeling that he could make it the home of his own passion - cooking.

“At the beginning of my career as a chef, I dreamed of cooking nightly at a small signature place that defines myself, creating dishes based on what was fresh, in season and at the market that day, with my hands on every plate that left the kitchen". Chef Terry Doner
