ChefGabbyTalented Executive Chef, Gabby Milton, joined Big Rock Chophouse and The Reserve in 2014 bringing with her more than 9 years of experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry.

She began her career in 2006 as co-owner of the Menu Manager, a dinner design studio offering easy meal preparation, catering, kids cooking camps, wholesale food delivery, and other food-related services, in Midland Michigan. This is where she discovered her love for food and decided to sell her half of the business in 2007 to attend culinary school.

After graduation, she interned with Walt Disney World in Florida where she worked in the global banquets and catering department for six months. She then moved back to Texas and served as a Catering Chef at Villa St. Clair, a wedding and special events facility.

She spent two years there before joining Big Rock Chophouse as Executive Sous Chef in April 2014 and then being named Executive Chef of the restaurant in January 2016.

Milton resides in Ferndale, Michigan.
