Had dinner with our friends on a Sunday evening. Not very busy however the service was quite slow. Food was good but just warm not hot, again this may have been due to the slow service. Atmosphere was nice, and if weather would have allowed the outside deck would have been lovely. Beautiful view right on the lake. We will... More

We had dinner and the buffet breakfast. Menu selection for dinner was great. Breakfast buffet was ok; hot selection was not a little dry once we got to it, which was unfortunate, but the range was good.

There were mixed reviews on TripAdvisor but I decided I'd go for the view. The view was nice but down the road at one of the winery's was a bit nicer. Service was ok. I mentioned I didn't like spicy but she didn't mention to me that the pepperoni on the pizza that I ordered had a good amount of... More

Not a huge variety on the menu but what is there is done really well. Kind of pricey for what they serve, but that is to be expected with the view they have. The patio is a gorgeous spot for afternoon drinks.

We stayed at the B&B in Kelowna and our host,Tony, highly recommended this restaurant . So one day, after visiting a few wineries, we stopped at Smack DAB for lunch. A great patio with gorgeous views of the Lake. Good food and appetizers, a nice casual spot to spend afternoon and enjoy the view of the Lake.

Smack Dab is the usual spot when family comes to town! Great patio right on the lake with mountain views. The seats are comfortable and the food is "Top Notch". Reasonable prices for the portion size as well as super service! I would highly recommend Smack Dabs for lunch. PS. If you must have gravy with your fries, you are... 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.
