    What's the difference between saying: I'm having dinner with a friend tomorrow and i

    What's the difference between saying:

    I'm having dinner with a friend tomorrow and it's not a date or anything so you are more than welcome to join.

    Vs


    I'm having dinner with a friend tomorrow and it's not a date or anything so you are more than welcome to join us.

    Are both okay and grammatical?

    The first lacks an object of 'join'.

    Therefore, only the second one is correct. Right?

    Yes.
    You can say, "I'm forming a club/party. Would you like to join?"
    But if you're asking someone to join you for dinner, you need to say "Would you like to join us/me". Parties and clubs are things that people generally join, but dinners are not.
