Ivanhoe Cafe: Polish Yacht Club Restaurant
The Ivanhoe Cafe: Polish Yacht Club is 102 years old. It is located on the corner of Jos Campau and Frederick. It's not located in the greatest of neighborhoods, but the food outshines the location. There is a guard outside guarding the parked cars at all times.
What I noticed when I walked in was photos that graced the walls of some famous people such as Dick Purtan, Plyllis Diller and many others. The place is quaint, dimly lit, with wall-papered walls and the old-fashioned tin ceiling.
I ordered the famous perch dinner and it included homemade chicken noodle soup, fresh coleslaw, french fries, a tomato, pickle and yellow pepper appetizer tray. The perch was lightly breaded and pan fried to perfection. I enjoyed my meal and would highly recommend it.
The prices range from $12.95 for the Polish Platter to $16 for the perch or walleye. There are many other fish meals to choose from and also some Polish delicacies.
The service was fast, friendly and efficient. After my meal, however, I had to wait for my bill. Perhaps she forgot or got busy. I noticed they added an 18 percent tip to my bill, but it was just me and my husband dining.
The hours are Monday thru Thursday 11:00 a.m.- 3:00 p.m. and on Friday's from 11:00 a.m. - 8 p.m. Closed on Saturday and Sunday.
If you want an old-fashioned Polish corner bar in a working class neighborhood on the border of Hamtramck, this place is for you.
