Lost our reservation, and really not concerned about it. Had guests in from Vancouver and Texas thought it would be nice location by the lake. We had reserved on the patio by the lake. Food at best was marginal restaurant was so loud and crowded you could not hear people speak at our own table. They are lucky they have... More

Do not go here with a group! We came with 7 people on a slow night after the dinner rush. They had atleast 10 open tables but refused to allow us to sit together as a party (no moving tables together, despite the emptiness). Apparently if the one large group both is being used they prefer to watch you walk... More

There was 6 of us in for a later dinner. We let the waiter know we would like some drinks right away. He brought waters, took our order & went away. It took almost 12 minutes for him to return after we observed the bartender carrying our drink order over to him. We received our drinks, he took our food... More

The food is great at this restaurant with amazing servers. We had a table at the windows so the enjoyment of our meal was enhanced by the splendid view of the lake.

You can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. Great views from almost every table or booth in the place. The bartender will make "ANYTHING" you want at the bar. Just ask and it's yours. Lots of smiles, lots of suggestions, lots of answers about food choices for you. A definite place to return to.

For our first night out in Kelowna, we had an amazing dinner on the patio/deck at Smack DAB. This restaurant is a little way out of the downtown area, but well worth the visit. The location is beautiful, right on the lake, with a lovely outdoor seating area. Our server was great, and happy to answer all questions about the... More

Our server was very smiley, helpful. and knowledgeable about the dinner menu. The menu was great and food and service was excellent. Great views and very reasonable prices for dinner Breakfast buffet was also excellent with good selections and was very inexpensive. They could easily charge more money for breakfast. Would definitely go back again

This restaurant has lovely views over the lake complementing the spacious upscale ambiance. The menu is varied and all our meals were good. My prosciutto pizza was excellent. Prices are reasonable for the quality and the wait staff were attentive at the quiet time we were there last. The only negative I would note is that it can get rather... More

We went to Smack Dab last night for supper. To begin with, there didn't seem to be a hostess there to seat us. We waited a long time, and finally one of the waiters sat us. I ordered a salad with greens, nuts, strawberries, etc in it. The salad was loaded with TONS of these stuck together with tons of... More

I think I was unlucky with my choices on the menu. The food was a let down, especially for the price. I highly recommend going for a drink just to enjoy the comfy seating and view of the lake.

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.
