Great place to watch a concert
My mom and I went to the Leelanau Sands Casino over Memorial Day weekend and I was never treated so poorly by one of the bartenders. I started a tab and when I went to cash out, I questioned my bar bill. The bartender was very verbal when I asked for a itemized bill and he proceeded to tell me to “calm down.” All I was asking for it an itemized bill because the bill I received only had a total on it. I never got loud or anything but he had major anger issues. The couple next to me couldn’t believe the way I was being treated and even asked if they needed me to stay as a witness to what was going on. He told me that he would have to get security to view the cameras in a rude tone and I said , “go ahead.” He was telling security about the situation he was very loud and aggressive. I told him I could hear how mean he was being then he asked security to throw me out. I was dumbfounded. I honestly could not believe what was happening. I was humiliated and treated horribly. When security came back they said they saw me coming to the bar twice but were not sure if it was me a third time. I was so upset and frustrated by this time I paid my bill, left a tip and left. I sent an email two weeks ago about this situation and never got a response. I can’t believe how poor the customer service is and I am still waiting 2 weeks later for a response. I am not sure what the bartender problem with me was. I am in a customer related business and cannot believe that management would let this guy get away with the way he treated me. He totally ruined our night and our weekend vacation. I have been going to this casino for years, but will it be back.
