Does the restaurant/bar have a policy that prohibits patrons from bringing in their own alcohol?

It has to do with their license. In Florida, there are two types of liquor licenses. On Premises and off premises. On premises license requires that all alcohol be purchased and consumed on premises. Off premises requires that all alcohol purchased or otherwise aquired be consumed off the premises.

Hard to imagine that anybody owning such an establishment wouldn't know the laws or where to find them.

However, the Florida liquor laws are Chapters 561 through 568. Read them.


Although I doubt that there is a statute that specifically prohibits patrons from bringing their own alcohol. That would have to be an option allowed by the owner or not allowed by the owner. And you don't have to explain anything to anybody that you deny entry to if they are carrying their own liquor.
