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.

We were here last year and the menu was fresh and creative. The menu now is little more than pub food. All 3 dishes we ordered had the same salty chorizo base sauce on it. Very disappointing as the outdoor patio is one of the best in Kelowna. They also seem to have a shortage of servers, making service quite... More

We went to Smack Dab for dessert. The patio is wonderful; I don't think you can beat the view. However, I ordered the apple pie but it definitely was not apple pie. It was an apple turnover and I don't think it was fresh. It felt and tasted like something packaged and frozen. Very disappointing.

Smack Dab is a fun place for a light evening meal located in Manteo Resort. We made a reservation on line which was very efficient and were given a really good table. The server was excellent and did not rush us despite being a busy Friday evening. The food was yummy and the price fair for the quality of restaurant.... More

Great patio, lovely view. The staff was friendly and prompt. We had shrimp tacos and chicken sandwich, which were good.

The service on the patio was very poor. I had to ask my server three times for my drink. The food took way too long. I have her the benefit of the doubt by giving a good tip and she just walked away without even saying thanks for coming. We spent over $350 at our table. I let the manager... More

What a nice way to start the morning or end the day by sitting and enjoying a meal on the deck looking onto the water. The food was great and the view beautiful!

We are staying at the Manteo Resort and we couldn't stop coming back to this restaurant. The food is fantastic!!!!!! My wife and my two girls just loved eating here. Definitely worth every penny. We will be coming back here for sure when we do visit Kelowna again.

Last time I was here the food was amazing but was rather disappointed this time. I had the steak which was rather chewy. The rest of the family were happy though - the kids enjoyed their soup and cheese sandwich, which actually was tastier than my meal at a third of the price! Location, as ever, is truly lovely.

The dining experience is about food, ambiance, service, and hopefully a gorgeous view of a lake and surrounding mountains. Smack Dab delivered on all accounts. The food was superb, the service was gracious and non-intrusive, the ambiance was relaxing and peaceful aided significantly by the view from the shores of Lake Okanagan and mountains of West Kelowna. We fed a... More

Way too expensive for what you get. The atmosphere is loud and totally unfriendly. Staff is slow. Not impressed. Won't be back
