Is it objectionable to eat at restaurants that serve alcoholic drinks?

The Details of the Question
What is the decree about eating and drinking at places like restaurants where alcoholic drinks are served? This issue is important in terms of two aspects. Most of the hotels where we stay during travels serve alcoholic drinks. Are we regarded to have committed haram when we eat at a table at a hotel restaurant where alcohol is drunk at the other tables?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

It is permissible to eat halal food at restaurants where alcohol is served. However, it is more appropriate to eat at places where alcohol is not served. Even if you do not drink alcohol, you support these businesses by eating there; therefore, you should prefer businesses where alcohol is not served. If there is no other place, you can buy things and eat at those places where alcohol is sold and served.
