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.

It was very busy but we were seated quickly and had our order taken. I was dining with a very picky eater and the kitchen was very accommodating. The pizza is to die for! Prices were reasonable, service was quick, food was tasty. A great place to eat.

Smack Dab renovated their patio a couple years back. Being right on the water on Okanagan lake, this is a beautiful place to spend a summer afternoon with friends. The food is really good, with unique selections and the restaurant is modern with a funky flare. Definitely recommend going.

Went in for the Bahn MI, Marlon Brando would definitely cut a pigs head off in ceremony. Dave was our server, he's super, thanks for asking.

Decided to try SmackDab again, keep hoping that the service and the food had improved. I am a local, and try to support Kelowna's restaurants. I made a reservation, knowing that I probably didn't need one, given the time of year. We were a party of three. Two of us arrived on time, and were shown to a table opposite... More

We brought friends here for dinner. While we have been here a few times this was their first visit. The food was delicious. We had pad Thai, Bahn mi, burger and fries and the short ribs. We enjoyed the fried Apple pie and flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was well prepared and flavourful. The service however was not great.... More

Thought we'd grab a quick bite. Waiter asked if I wanted a 6 or 9 ounce glass.. (later noticed that only a 3 and 6 oz. glass were options on the menu). I said 9, which wasn't even on the menu. When our bill came, it was $18.75 for a glass of wine. Asked the waiter why he didn't mention... More

I took my husband for lunch and we were again impressed with the quality of the food, drinks and service. Although the atmosphere is not really "pub" (a bit more modern styling in the dining room, not post and beam). It's the best lakeside patio in the summer for sure and the views with the glass in winter are spectacular.... More

Food was great and the views are as well. Stayed at the Manteo Resort and didn't really discover this until our last night there. Should have checked it out sooner.

Smack DAB has the nicest patio right by the lake - great spot to have a drink and enjoy the view. That is what we go there for. The food is okay - the bread with oil and vinegar for a snack and the flatbread for a meal are the best food options, in my opinion.
