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

12/10 for Tyler. He gave us a refill of aioli and we didn’t even request this. He literally just met the needs we didn’t even know we had. Thanks Ty. You’ll always have a special place in our hearts.

Our server Matthew was great. We enjoyed the oyster Friday. I enjoyed the banana cocktail and frizzante. Husband liked his beer. High River burger was good and the crazy fries were awesome. Chicken wings are fine. Love the view!

Try to go to a drink at smack dab for patio drink , they stopped seating @7? They were not busy empty seats and they close at 12 ?10? Every sign they have says different . No signage or anything to let us or hotel...guests know they will be done seating . The host replied with OH its summer yea know . Clearly we know as we both work in the industry . But thanks for keeping us in the loop on the seasons … but you can’t get us a table. Ridiculous . I would want my hotel guests to know if they were done seating in between dinner .More

Service was not bad, but the lack of options in the menu is very disappointed. Quality food is very bad, I have stayed 5 days in Manteo and I have eating almost all in the menu, the only food acceptable is the charcuterie board and...the pizza. No fish as main dish in the menu, salads are horrible, just pure lettuce. the place is in a great spot and view but they really need to improve the menu and quality.More

Food and service were great, dining on the outside patio is the best spot. Good views of folks walking by and the Marina.

We ordered 3 cobb salads today for pick up. There was no ham, no chicken, very little cheese and bacon and a whole lot of chopped lettuce. I paid $19/salad for nothing but leaves. Oh...there was an egg. Very disappointing.

I have reviewed this restaurant before & was not happy with the experience so haven’t been back for a long time. It was worth the wait tho as it has improved a lot. From the hostesses to server service was excellent. Kathy was very knowledgeable...& seemed happy to welcome us. The food & drinks were great. Of course the view is incredible. I would now be happy to recommend. Living just up the road means I often take visitors out in the neighborhood or make suggestions to them. I will now put Smack Dab back on my list!More

Decided to take our daughter out for her 19th birthday for a drink and a small celebration, smack dabs service and food was lovely felt like we could forget Covid for a brief moment. The DJ really created a great ambience, both my two daughters,...wife and I were impressed by the music selection - great remixes of classic's that my wife and I recognized and enjoyed yet also music that the girls loved. He created a great summer vibe. We will be backMore

Oh how I wanted to love this place! All the ingredients are there. The food we ordered, we enjoyed. The seating was beautiful. A patio on Okanagan Lake, who can complain? But the service was so slow that if I were to ever return, I...would go back planning to enjoy some ( maybe a few) pre dinner beverages before expecting food to arrive. With that mindset and expectation, I would return. If I wanted to enjoy a good meal quickly, I would try somewhere else.More

We had a lovely happy hour on the patio with great service from Lexie. It was our second visit within a week because we enjoyed the first time so much. The setting is perfect and the food was very tasty. We ordered the charcuterie platter,...it was a very generous plate with delicious flatbread slices. Other restaurants should take note and pattern their charcuteries after Smack Dab's. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon in a beautiful setting.More
