Unless he has eyes in the back of his head, he's not even gong to see it coming.
Depending upon the situation, my first preference is to let it go, but dirtbags like this can lose it in a minute with the wrong customer...then what?

As was already mentioned for another state... a higher end restaurant in SC means that most likely, alcohol is being served... and CWP is not allowed by law.
we've got to change this.

In Texas, we can only carry in Establishments that get less than 51% of their income from alcohol sales.

His mommy would be on the news questioning why anybody would shoot her son since he was in the process of turning his life around and that at only 18 he was a responsible father for all 6 of his babys by different babys mommas and he just needed a little money to pay his tuition

I'm in NC so if alcohol is served my gun is in the car. Best I could do is stab him in the eyeball with my fork.

Yep, NC is a big no-no for guns and alcohol served. Absolutely not, period.

There are many possibilities depending on the situation. What kind of cover is nearby? Dividers between tables? Are there more BGs? Is there a clear shot? Do I need to use the steak knife instead of the gun if there is no clear shot? Do I motion for my wife to quietly get down? Do I throw cash on the floor as a distraction so he won't see me draw? Also, he won't have much time because somebody has probably dialed 911 already.

this is an armed robbery. there is no question about shooting. it does not matter if he plans on shooting or not. he is threatening my families lives. I chose my family.

why should I have to ahnd over my wallet though? I have no deisre to give my property to a common thief. I am putting his criminal ass down if given the opportunity.

Here in the hills, our classy restaurant is Hardy's (=Carl's for your west coasters, similar to McDonald's).

I would expect her to shoot the cashier or a patron or come after me (and now it's a gunfight in a crowd) - I doubt she would merely run away. Too, one-shot-and-he-drops-dead isn't guaranteed: at the very least I would expect him to fire off a round from a convulsive grip even if he's not aiming.
I think my likelihood would be to play along with the bad guy rather than shoot. No criticism for any different responses, of course.
May God keep us out of tight situations, and give us grace to call it correctly should we need to.
