Good to go in CT.
This is a discussion on Does Outbac Steak House limit Concealed Carry in your state. within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; This is interesting - because their stores in Minnesota aren't signed.

This is interesting - because their stores in Minnesota aren't signed.
I'll be dropping them a note tonight advising them of my decision to dine elsewhere from now on.
There are a lot of people responding, "Okay here", "No problems", or "Good to go". Sign or no sign, as I see it, if Outback has a problem in TN, then they also have a problem everywhere else. I see no reason for me to every patronize a Outback again (as well as Hooters).
I will be writing them (as well as Hooters) to inform them of my dissapointment regarding their decision to deny citizen's their rights. Even more importantly, that I will no longer patronize their business.

If they don't want my money, that's fine. I haven't been to Pizza Hut since they fired Ronald Honeycutt in June 2004 for defending his life while working for them. My friends don't go either and 1 of their Huts in Marquette, Michigan doesn't exist anymore. They wouldn't even answer my email.

Outback is called the Outhouse by my family.
I ate there once. I didn't care for the food, it was terrible (I won't even mention the service). I have never been back, and will not.
But now I can blame it on bad food and anti-guns...
I've open carried IAW VA state law in the Outbacks here in Richmond. The ones I've been to are not posted. I understand possibly some in NoVA are posted, but not sure on that. I do not ask if they allow you to carry, if they aren't posted I'll carry IAW state laws.
Did I mention I eat at Outback for free. My credit card offers special deal for the use of points for Outback gift cards (so it is like 1/2 off for food I get from points). I never carry a credit card balance, so it really is free food for me.
Drifting off topic, but just not sure I'm going to change where I eat based on this topic. The problem is not Outback, they may share some blame, but they are not the cause. Now if I lived in a state where it was an issue, I would not go to a chain that did not allow CC.
MN, I carry in the Outback all the time.
Signs mean nothing in Utah and we can carry in bars here. I dont eat at Outback anyway.

I believe this is your response to questions about your policy about concealed carry in Tennessee:
“While we respect the right of all citizens to bear arms, it is our decision to not allow people to do so in our restaurants. This is a corporate decision. We are not disrespectful of the rights of gun owners, we merely want all of our guests to feel welcomed and safe, and frankly see no need for guns to be brought into restaurants.”
So what I would like to know is what level of comfort do you want your guests to experience? These twenty three people were guests at a restaurant that did not allow concealed carry and I don’t think they would feel welcome or safe in your restaurant.
Do you really believe that a sign keeping legally authorized, law abiding citizens would contribute to the safety of these victims? Do you think if a NO GUNS ALLOWED sign was posted at Luby’s on Oct 16th, 1991, that George Jo Nennard would have chosen a different restaurant in which to commit mass murder?
Please , do explain in more detail how banning concealed carry will make guests “welcome and safe” as facts and history contradict this policy.
Remember, there are now two things Texans never forget, the Alamo and the Luby’s massacre.
Since Davy Crockett was a honorable and armed citizen who came from Tennessee, to stand with his Texas brothers, we Texans are surely going to help out our brothers from Tennessee. If that means never setting foot in one of your restaurants again, then so be it.
