There were a couple of tables with kids. One had rather young children, the other was a bit above toddler age. I don't see a problem, there are different seating area, i.e. not in the bar, itself.

There was no dress code. I wore jeans; the couple next to my table were wearing more dressy clothes. Wear what makes you feel comfortable. I would suggest nothing with holes or graphic art.
