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.

Beware the $19 glass of wine

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... read 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.

Staff at times are very distant and sometimes rude. We went for our Anniversary and my wife had made a reservation for a specific table.

Dear Douglas, We try to accommodate requests, but are unable to guarantee specific tables when making reservations. Almost every table in the restaurant has views of the lake, especially with the floor to ceiling window along the entire front of the restaurant. A reservation guarantees that you will have a table when you arrive, which is recommended to ensure that... More

Slow service, mediocre food. Obviously counting on the one time tourists for their business. Locals are very dissatisfied.

Had reservations for the outside patio and when we arrived we were led to an inside table. I told them I had reserved for outside and they said "Oh you can't reserve for outside". Not sure why I bothered making a reservation. We had company and wanted to sit so they could enjoy a view of the lake. Saw the... More

Have been a few times with friends and family. My very favourite meal is the Prawn Tacos. they taste fresh, just the right amount of kick, and are more filling than they look. The drink menu is great, and all the food everyone has had with us has been great. Of course the view is incredible anytime of the year... More

Dear Guest, The prawn tacos are a favorite of many & glad to read that you enjoy them.

We ate here because we were staying at the hotel. We didn't feel like driving anywhere, so this is where we ate. Menu selection was limited but meal quality was good.
