    Smile at and in

    I want the difference between at and in. When do we say at the restaurant and when in the restaurant.
    Thanks

    Re: at and in

    Use in when you want to express activity inside the restaurant (e.g., I'm in the restaurant eating; I'm in the restaurant standing in line for a table), and use at when you want to express a general location (e.g., I'm at the restaurant now and about to go inside; I'm at the restraurant with Sam and won't be back until this afternoon; e.g., I am at the restuarant, right outside the doors, but I'm not going in. It's too crowded.)

    All the best.

    Use "at" if you work at the restaurant or go there very often. In other cases you can use "in".
