How bad off is the restaurant industry?

I live in coastal NC and so this is always a quiet time of the year. But I'm not sure if I'm being overly paranoid or if there are really no people dining out anymore. We try to dine out once a week, always at an independent restaurant, never fast food, usually higher end. Lately we have had occasions where we are the only table in a restaurant! I see plenty of cars parked at the Applebee's and Texas Steak House type places, but I don't eat there so maybe the parking lot is deceiving and they are quiet as well. But certainly the quality restaurants around here are hurting. And I though we in NC were fairing relatively well in this horrid economy. What are other people experiencing around the country?
