Description: Smack DAB is a lively kitchen and bar located in the heart of Manteo Resort on the shores of Okanagan Lake. Open daily for buffet breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night snacks. Smack DAB is as perfect for a quick beer after work as it is for an amazing dinner on Kelowna’s largest lakeside patio. Smack DAB, offers premium casual dining. Sit in a booth and watch our Smack DAB chefs prepare your favorite item from our forno oven & open concept kitchen area. The room is designed to take full advantage of the incredible lake views from the restaurant and bar, private dining room, and outdoor patio. Large folding glass doors allow for an open-air environment in the summer months. We are equally serious about our suds as we are about our food. We offer Kelowna’s largest selection of craft beer.

Standard pub fair with a great beer list. The lake side patio is awesome, maybe the best in Kelowna. Service was sub-par. After paying, the waitress went around checking everyone's bill in a very obvious fashion - we weren't sure if she was unsatisfied with the tips or what, it came across as very rude.

I have been here about four times and every time I have been very impressed. Service was great. The booccacini and tomato salad is delicious. The cherry cheesecake is ridiculously tasty, and the patio at night is so beautiful and cozy. I will be back soon !!

Manteo has put a new spin on their gorgeous lakeside restaurant. Smack DAB has great food, a super staff and the view from the patio, or even inside, is amazing (especially in the evening). Worth a drive to Mission even if you are staying downtown.

Lovely location! We had a Korean wrap and a gluten-free pizza for lunch. Very good food. Service, too, was helpful and pleasant, except perhaps for the reception which was bored and inattentive. The patio is fantastic with a great view, nice breeze and comfortable chairs, at my age a must. Total bill about $50 which included one drink.

We stayed at Manteo for 3 nights and had several meals at Smack Dab. The patio is awesome, menu has a great selection of food and everything we tried was excellent. Chicken soup is so yummy with fresh vegetables that are cooked perfectly. Prawn tacos were excellent, shared this dish and was very filling. Crispy Beef and prawn salad was... More

We stopped in here last minute for lunch on a Saturday. As a party of 8 (with 2 kids) and no reservation, we did not expect to get a table. The front desk staff and wait staff were very polite, sat us immediately and offered high chairs and to put the baby buggy out of the way. Our food was... More

Too many excuses for long wait, and sub standard service from all staff "team" members. Protein in the tacos, (prawns and Korean ribs, very bland and all the fresh veggies and sauces in the tacos didn't enhance flavors at all as expected. And did I mention my it's our Mom and Dad's 50 wedding anniversary?

The location is really nice - right on the water with a huge, lounge-style patio outside. The tables are a bit on the small side outdoors but are great for sharing drinks with friends before or after your meal. I've had the pesto chicken pizza there with both the gluten-free and the regular crust and both times it was great!... More

We were drawn to it by the beer list and its prime location on the waterfront. The patio at El Dorado and the previous patio at this location, Wild Apple, were better due to the open air (this place is enclosed by glass) - but overall Smack Dab was an excellent experience. Service was friendly and had a good flow... More

Breakfast buffet was cheap but good! Full menu from 11am to 10pm with lots of variety. Even when busy our take out orders were quick!
