To “have your family for dinner” can also mean to invite them over to eat dinner with you.  That is why the joke is funny.  The listener is expecting advice on whether or not to invite the family over for dinner.  The answer shows that the questioner had a different meaning in mind.  It reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode, To Serve Man.
