Why is it במסעדה and not את המסעדה?

levaker et is when visiting a person

levaker be - for a place

Can one say מבקרות למסעדה instead of מבקרות במסעדה?

No, you cannot really use the preposition -ל after בִּקֵּר to visit.

Why earlier in this lesson is מבקר followed by אותם (direct object) but in this case מבקרות is followed by במסעדה (object prefaced by preposition ב)

Because מִשְׂעָדָה is a place. You use the direct object only with people.
