After 27 years in the Culinary Arts field, Ammie Mines started Ammie’s Catering in 2016. "Through love and good food, I was able to bless many people, and my dream was to one day open my own restaurant," she said.
In 2021, Ammie and her cousin, Kelly Jackson, decided to step out on faith and make her dream a reality. Ammie’s love for cooking is driven by her passion for seeing people come together with friends and family gathered, which is why she chose “Around The Table” for the restaurant's name.
With Kelly’s business knowledge and Ammie’s cooking skills, together, they have created a place that they hope makes their customers feel at home.
“I love having my business in Ashland. Aside from it being my hometown, it is filled with good people that love good food,” said Ammie. “I’m happy to provide a place for those who live here, visit here, or pass through here to come for some comforting soul food."
She added, "We like to think we are helping put Ashland more on the culinary map.”
In addition to dine-in and takeout options, Around the Table also offers catering services and venue rentals for special events. Around the Table is located at 155 Junction Drive in the Ashland Junction Shopping Center.
