What is a tavern and how is it different from a restaurant? For example, I have been down to swing dances at the Graveyard Tavern before. They serve full blown meals and lots of people seem to be sitting at full-sized tables and eating. The DoR alcohol license says the business type is a tavern, so I am going to go out on a limb and say it may be off-limits for carry without the owners permission. What I am not sure about at all is when something goes from a restaurant to a tavern. Thoughts?
