I know that we cannot carry in places that serve alcohol for consumption on premisis, but does that include places like Applebee's and Olive Garden, or is it referring to bars, nightclubs, etc?

Usually if it is a restaurant with a bar the law is different.

I think the law states and place that serves alcohol.

In some states the percentage of sales from alcohol vs food matters...not so in GA AFAIK.

Any place that sells booze in a glass is a no-no.

Incorrect! It they serve booze for consumption on premises, you cannot carry, period! The law in Georgia makes no exception, no allowance, for restaurants.
