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.

Great atmosphere

The atmosphere and staff at this restaurant make it the place to be in the summer! The patio is in my opinion the best of Kelowna's patio's. There is a good sized menu with plenty of options. A definite winner in my books to

The location is beautiful. I asked for a table with a view and although there were empty tables by the window, we ended up getting a table further away. I ordered a Sangria which was okay and for dinner I ordered the Ahi Tuna. When the waiter brought out our dinners, he knocked over my drink into my dinner, so... More

Both food and location are awesome at Smack DAB with a large selection of dishes served generously. In addition to inside tables, the terrasse is offering tables and sofas facing the lake.

Food/drink and wine selection are always good there. But on this visit I was sadly disappointed in the service. Waitress was not friendly, nor did she keep our glasses topped up, we had to pour our own wine. Once our food was served she didn't return to see if we were satisfied until we were almost finished anyway. Lots of... More

Ambiance is pretty nice, modern and airy. Great patio with wonderful views of the lake. Beer selection modest and OK. Food selection is limited and was executed alright, nothing special. Service was subpar on all levels, not sure if they are understaffed or mismanaged or untrained. Pro tip - their exceedingly poor service has immediately relegated them to my "I... More

foodie and cocktail crawl through lower mission and this place was a hit. We really enjoy the ambience and energy this place brings on a Friday night when you want to unwind and relax. Not to mention this place quite possible has the best lakeside patio in Kelowna.

limited selection and poor service, once they take your order it takes forever to get your drinks or food.

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.
