Does anyone know where I can find the corporate policy from AppleBee's on open carry?

Don't know... but I have OCed in the Benton Harbor Applebee's 5 or 6 times with no ill affect.
Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

Sorry if this is too new-ish of me but Applebee's sells alcohol so you need a CPL? Correct?

If you OC at a business that has a liquor license you must have a CPL or permission from the owner/management, I would recommend the permission be in written form.

I think if it's 50 or 75% of their income comes from alcohol, you cannot carry in said location, period, OC *or* CC.  I carry in Bennigan's and occasionally other bar & grills, but sit at booths, not at the bar, and have never had an issue, nor have I needed permission.

Rather you ask a question before the police come then after, don't be afraid to ask, ever!  From the MOC tri-fold brochure, including legal cite and reference below.  In plain english, you cannot open carry anywhere that is licensed to sell alcohol, even if they don't sell it currently.  Applebee's does indeed serve alcohol, and is licensed to do so, therefore without a CPL you cannot carry there openly.

To clarify the other gentlemen's with a CPL question, you can not Conceal Carry at a bar (50% of income from poured drinks consumed on the premises.)  Applebee's would not fit that description at all, as they are a restaurant and a bar.  Anywhere that is a bar, the only way (I don't recommend it, but some do) you can legally carry in a bar or tavern is to oepnly carry your pistol and possess a valid CPL.

72cinjin and xj bmx, feel free to ask more if that does not clarify your questions and concerns.

What places are off limits to
firearms without a CPL? (Sec. 234d)
(1) Except as otherwise provided in
subsection (2), a person shall not possess a
firearm on the premises of any of the following:
a) A bank.
b) A church
c) A court
d) A theatre
e) A sports arena
f) A day care center
g) A hospital.
h) An establishment licensed under the Michigan
liquor control act.

Close Northofnowhere.  I changed a few things to get you on the spot (my text in red above)

An example.  Say you went to an establishment famous for their hot wings and waitstaff.  They have a Liquor License for Beer only.  Still licensed but not for hard liquor.  And lets say this location has sales as follows.  Food 35% Beer 36% and Merchandise (tee shirts, calendars and the like) 21%.  The person in this case would only be able to OC with a CPL.  There could be no CC or OC without a CPL.  The majority of the income (not always 50%) was from Alcohol sales for consumption on the premises.  Depending on how the business breaks down its income it could get very dicey CCing anyplace that has Alcohol for consumption on the premises in Michigan.

The statute uses the language "primary" income is from Alch. sold by the glass for on premises consumption, IIRC.

Either way, I think it boils down to asking the management. I don't think that you can find out if the primary source of revenue unless you ask someone anyways.
