There was a group of us out for dinner and the meal I had was delicious. I enjoyed the view of Okanagan Lake with the sun setting. The only downside was our server made a remark about the hostess not doing her job. I though the hostess was fantastic and bubbly when we walked in.

My boyfriend and I checked out this place while we were staying in Kelowna. I don't think you can reserve a table outside (first come, first serve), but be prepared to wait because the view is fantastic! Great selection of dishes to choose from and the waitstaff was excellent.

Great location, far better value and service than the Eldorado next door. Food ok, average value. Very nice setting. One bad point is their parking procedure. Should just have to give a license plate # instead of running back and forth.

Came here twice because the food was so good. Had the fish tacos one night and the MOST incredible chicken burger I think I have ever had the second night. The drinks and desserts are also great (try the homemade ice creams!). I would have come a third night just to have the chicken burger again if I had the... More

Our family visited for dinner based on the recommendations from friends who has visited before. The staff and views were second to none I found the food to be a little on the overpriced side for the portions we got. I myself ordered the fish and chips and upgraded my chips to their fancier fries (the name escapes me) however... More

Lovely lakeside patio to have lunch at. Price points are mid/high with service midrange. We had the crazy fries, angry chicken, and the pad Thai. Portions were all quite large with the mains at about 25 dollars. Flavours didn't quite hit the mark with us on the fries and chicken, but the pad Thai was decent but very saucy. Definitely... More

We made a reservation & were not guaranteed the patio. Which is fine. When we arrived we weren't offered to wait at the bar for a table outside, as I suggested on the phone when I made the reservation. We were offered a seat on a sofa in the lounge of the patio to eat, which we declined and instead... More

Dear Guest, I am very sorry that your request for a table outside was not able to be met when you reserved your table. Due to sudden weather changes, we do not accept reservations on the patio so that we can guarantee seating for all guests that do reserve, in the chance that the patio is closed. I am sorry... More

This is one of those patios to appreciate the beauty around you, the great BC wines and some excellent food. We were also blessed with excellent service. Pizza was top notch, and the charcuterie plate was very good. Prices are appropriate for the service, ambience and food quality. We arrived at about 4:00, and were able to get a table... More

First time we visited Smack DAB and it was fantastic. The location is in the Mission in the Manteo resort. It is located adjacent to the lake with the patio seating being the best tables. We visited in the evening and it was quite busy. Service was very good overall, although slow to begin ordering drinks and food. The food... More

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.
