Tennessee recently passed a restaurant carry law that has opt-out provisions for the restaurants. Outback Steak Houses in Tn have chosen to go that route. I e-mailed Outback on the subject and received the following note for them:

Dear Mr. Aurelio;
Thank you for your recent email concerning the newly passed gun law in the State of 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.
Please feel free to call me if there are any additional concerns or questions.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
So my questions is "Do they ban in your state." If the do, then fine we can live with that but if they don't then we need to make sure we don't eat there since they dont want us there.
