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.

Love the view

Best outdoor patio. Always changing their menu. I miss their wonton shrimp from two years ago and a wonderful rye drink with a beer reduction from last summer. So go while you have a chance before they change the menu if you find something you love.

Great location, nice patio on the lakeshore, good selection on menu, should have been a first class experience but the seating at tables was a failure. Everyone who entered was told there was a waiting list for tables. At one time we counted five empty tables ready for use. Hostess was also unfriendly. When we finally got food it was... More

It was our second time visiting family in Kelowna and we wanted a fun place to take everyone. Did not disappoint in the least. Great atmosphere on the water, reservations required. Menu had a bit of everything. 2 of us had the pizza which was perfect...thin crust and a bit spicy, steak was great as was the seafood chowder..not really... More

In from out of town, love restaurants and this one had great reviews. Walked in and two women at the front were talking and looking at a receipt. They both starred, but said nothing. I waited for them to be done and finally, after 5 mins I interrupted and we got seated. Service was slow, Caesar salad was extremely salty,... More

The space of this restaurant is absolutely DIVINE! Who wouldn't want to sit on a patio in the hot Okanagan Sun sipping some fun summer cocktails? On my visit to the Okanagan I was able to try a few fun food spots. Everything besides the location of this place were average. Food was average, service was average, the only thing... More

This restaurant has the BEST view in all of Kelowna! Stunning lake and mountain vistas. The staff are friendly, the service prompt and the food is excellent. They have a great range of gluten free items on the menu - at least three choices of starter, four or five mains, gluten-free pizza and a dessert option. Highly unusual in a... More

This was our first visit to Smack DAB and it was a great experience. We loved the location right on Okanagan Lake in the active Mission area of Kelowna. The weather was perfect that night so they had the large window doors wide open which pretty much makes the entire restaurant like an outdoor patio. It was breezy outside so... More

Great food. Great service, but for the second time in a month, we stare at a mostly empty indoor seating area from uncomfortable seats in the lounge. Where we had to sit because it's booked. It ruins it when you're uncomfortable and then angry.

Flatbreads were delicious and bigger than expected. Food was good overall but service was slow. We attempted to dine here for lunch the next day since it was in our hotel, but were told there was a 20 minute wait for what appeared to be an almost empty restaurant.

We stayed at Manteo Resort this summer and having Smack Dab downstairs was super convenient. We walked in without reservations and they were able to seat us right away since we likely beat the rush at 630pm for dinner. Service was good and the food was delicious! It was windy that day so we elected to stay inside but had... More
