Could you also have this sentence say "Er isst mit seinem Vater" to mean that "He eats with his father." If so, would you just go with context to understand it?

"Er isst mit seinem Vater" is fine, but "Er ist mit seinem Vater" is wrong. It should say "Er ist bei seinem Vater".

And I suppose I'll learn about "bei" later? Thanks!
