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.

This was our first time at Smack Dab. My boyfriend and I arrived around 6 and we wanted a seat on the patio but it was full, so the hostess suggest we wait at the bar for our table. When we asked if we could also order food she said "we encourage our guests not to order food at the... More

After a few visits we have cooled off somewhat, literally and figuratively. Yesterday, we wanted to sit on the terrace on a cool day with warm sun and wind. The restaurant has a section outside that is sheltered from the wind while in the sun: perfect. Or so we thought. However, this section was closed so the staff wouldn't have... More

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch. The meat and cheese platter was a bit on the salty side, but the flatbread was great. The cold beer was perfect as we sat in the sun for a quick bit of r&r.

Maybe they were understaffed at dinner. Whatever the cause, the disappointing service was surprising. The food also was quite good at other meals, and the service was better.

Given the potential of the site, views, setting and ambiance Smack Dab at Manteo Resort continues to massively disappoint. The service level continues to be pathetic at best, food quality is fair to poor with healthy pricing. The drinks are solid and the wine menu descent. The Breakfast buffet works once but why can't they offer a very simple a... More

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
