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.

“Annivesary Dinner”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We came here for our anniversary dinner. We did notice that the place was full and it was very noisey. We ordered the steak and Salmon. The food was hot.. service was good.. the food was average... the menu was limited... not a place you would want to go for a nice romanice quiet dinner.. more for a football, group office party gathering.

Great local beer taster, amazing Ceasar salad, and the wonton prawns were impressive! Will hit this place again this week for the wine flight!

“Love Smack DAB!!!”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Smack DAB is something new & fresh to Kelowna. They may be working out a few opening quirks, but they are definitely on the right track to be something that Kelowna is much over due in needing. Great food, a good selection of drinks, although a bit more for ladies - my wife had a hard time deciding on what to have as there wasn't a lot of the fruit style drinks she likes. Other than that, the food was fantastic - loved the margarita pizza and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. What more could you ask for? We will be back!

“Great reincarnation”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Our first visit to a new restaurant in an old location. Well done Manteo and Smack Dab. An interesting "causal" menu (loved my Fish Tacones) with a stellar selection of craft beers and local wines. Prices are reasonable, server was excellent and our waiter, Andrew, was knowledgeable and informative. When the patio is finished and opened this place will be hopping. Great view of our beautiful lake to enjoy excellent food and drink. A positive change from the previous good, but too pricey venue.

“Food was good but pricey if they want locals all year round”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Expensive really. I don't want an $18 burger plus tax and tip the food was ok/good really but for a place that has a captive audience in its hotels guest for a few months a year, the locals that they need the other 9 months won't pay these prices. So if I want a burger and a beer, my bill is $27 plus tip and tax. So for just me it is over $30 for a beer and burger. Live across the street and won't come back for those prices. Bummer. Went on a Friday and no drink or meal specials.
