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.

Excellent food and view

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... read more

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.

Same as another reviewer mentioned, I had the Salad (roasted yam - very tasty, etc.) for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was fast and friendly. I didn't try the dessert - may be next time.

I thoroughly enjoyed a 'Smack Dab Salad' that included fresh mixed greens, roasted yam, cherry tomato, pickled red onion, carrot ribbons, pumpkin seeds & a delicious citrus dressing. It was quite awesome & quickly served considering there were lots of hungry swimmers there too who had luscious looking pizzas & crispy calamari!

Was my 3rd visit and I've given food positive reviews. HOWEVER, tonight was our second night in a row with a group of 9. Last night no issues. Tonight wouldn't separate the bills, took 30+ minutes to sort out bill, and we had to write it out for them. After this terrible service they put AUTOMATIC gratuity on 'group' bill... More

Tried this place just after it opened and was not impressed. Haven't been there since. My husband showed me the new menu online including the gluten free options. I had the Smack dab maui gluten free pizza and was impressed. Nice house made crust baked in a forno oven. Tasty, and not skimpy on the toppings. I would give a... More

A true Okanagan gem with a spectacular lake view and a first rate patio. The food and service are superb... attention to detail without being stuffy. Terrific luncheon spot to entertain clients as the menu and beverage options are varied but not over the top. Excellent value and a pleasing atmosphere.

I loved that it was right on the waterfront. But I really miss the upscale restaurant that used to be in that location. Going for a romantic dinner at an amazing restaurant just isn't the same when they are serving burgers and fries.

We've eaten at Smack Dab several times since it opened and have always found the food, service and overall atmosphere to be very good. It offers a very large, lakeside patio, that is a must do, for any warmer weather traveler to the area. There are only a handful of places to eat that are actually on the water with... More
