    Not here.

    I live in a "dry" county.

    Oklahoma is about like Florida on this issue -- you can carry in a restaurant but stay out of the bar area (I think it actually stipulates no sitting at the bar while armed). Works for me. As for actually having drinks while sitting down to eat, the law is silent on that (as it should be). Get yourself out of line while armed and see what happens.

    I think most of the states who disallow carry in places that serve alcohol have that in their law due to poison pills by the anti-gunners, who try to put road blocks in our way anyway they can.

    I haven't noticed any restaurants in Oklahoma that have "no gun" signs, but then Oklahoma's concealed carry law (enacted in 1995) never said anything different than the above about restaurant carry. Around here it is mostly 7-11's and some banks that post no carry (oh, and most hospitals). But it isn't against the law to carry in these places -- just those places desire that you don't.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    OC or CC are allowed in restaurants, bars, brothels, and saloons in NH.

    NH has had carrying laws (both OC and CC) for quite a while. I think everybody is used to it around here.

    It's the newer states that are the most squeamish. Once they find out it's no big deal everyone relaxes.

    In Utah it is legal to CC into alcohol serving restraunts, and I can honestly say I have never seen a sign prohibiting guns at any restraunts in Utah.
    Thank goodness!

    I checked in to the Cracker barrel serving alcohol, and I guess NO Cracker barrel serves,.. They feel that it wouldn't give the feeling of a family style atmosphere if they served.... So ya,. Guess there is one more place I can legally eat,.. :-)

    In Nevada you may carry in casinos, bars, clubs, restaurants, whorehouses (they are legal in parts of Nevada). They may ask you to leave for any reason, or no reason at all, and, under Nevada's trespass law, you must leave.

    You may drink while carrying. The BAC limit is 0.10 (DUI is 0.08, when they lowered it to get federal highway money they did not change the limit for CCW).

    Signs on private property do not have the force of law and may be ignored.

    I love Nevada.

    I live in West Tennessee now but a few years ago, before we moved here, we lived in Alabama. You can carry into a restaurant that serves alcohol there and I never heard of a problem. The only stipulations were, you could not drink alcohol while carrying (if I remember right) and you could not sit in the bar section while carrying. No problem, carried many many times when going out to eat.

    I am very happy that we will be able to carry when we go out to eat soon here in Tennessee!

When the wife and I go to one of those locations I simply do the VA tuck and go about my business.
    TGI Friday's corporate policy is to disallow all guns in their restaurants, but they do allow franchisees to make their own decisions in this regard (so basically, it's not allowed unless the franchisee says it is).

    I seem to recall that Darden Restaurants (owners of Red Lobster and Olive Garden, among others) also disallows all guns.

    I have (open) carried at Old Country Buffet and a couple of different Cracker Barrel restaurants without incident. I don't believe either serves alcohol, but I just make it my policy to always OC in a restaurant, so I don't get in trouble. :)

    I've had my LTCH in Indiana since 1985. I've been carrying in restaurants that serve alcohol, nightclubs, taverns, bars. bootleg joints, etc. since at least 1985. I have not seen or have been in one single gun fight in any of those places.

    I say, let us carry! The bad guys are!
