Notes on Selling or Serving A restaurant licensee may not sell, offer for sale, or furnish an alcoholic product except in connection with an order for food prepared, sold, and furnished at the licensed premises. The DABC's best practice requires that a food order must be placed prior to service of the alcoholic beverage.

A person may not sell, offer to sell, or otherwise furnish any alcoholic beverage to any minor or to any person who is actually or apparently intoxicated, or to any know interdicted person.
Dram Shop Liability Laws Yes. Alcohol licensees must have a minimum of $1,000,000 per occurrence, and $2,000,000 in the aggregate.
Acceptable Forms of ID Valid driver's license, or valid state ID, or valid military ID with picture, or valid passport or passport card. IDs must have a photograph, not expired, and no evidence of tampering. A driving privilege card is NOT acceptable proof of age for the purchase/service of alcoholic beverages. Alien ID cards are NOT accepted as proof of identity for the purchase of alcoholic beverages. Identification is only required to be on someone's person if age is in question by server/retailer.
