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.
