We ate here twice after meetings. I pretty sure that they supplied our meeting food as well which was delicious, with excellent presentation. The first night that i ate at the restaurant I found it delicious. I had the mussels plus a salad and my friend had the fish and chips. The waitress was very helpful and mentioned that I... More

This place was close to where we stayed so we decided to try it out for a late lunch. To our surprise we got there in time for Happy Hour. There were 5 of us so we ordered 4 pizza's. Definitely more than enough and they were all amazing! Top that off with happy hour sangria's and you've got some... More

As locals we always enjoy a meal at Smack Dab and their chicken sandwich is more than enough for two. But their wine by the glass is 25% + more than any other restaurant. As a result we often go elsewhere. Just saying. Drew.

Modern decor with wonderful view of Okanagan lake. The breakfast is cafeteria style with limited choice but the food is good. The lunch and dinner menu is small and I would describe it more like pub food.It has a nice bar it's lots of TV's to watch sporting events. The staff is very friendly and efficient.

If you're gonna enjoy Smack Dab, be sure to sit on the patio for sunset. It's perfect location for sunset dining. The service is consistently good and the food is as well. They have lots of warmers on the patio and they've added glass to cut the wind. They accommodate children outside nicely. Be sure to make a reservation in... More

My family and I enjoyed a terrific brunch on March 9th, 2017 at Smack DAB. Incredible food -- the scrambled eggs and breakfast pizza are a must. Service was very friendly and welcoming. Highly recommended.

We have dined here several times and have never been disappointed with our meal or service. It's a lovely setting. I really love the pizzas. And I'm not even a big pizza eater! Good drinks.

If your in Kelowna during the summer or fall, this eatery should be on your must eat list! You can usually get a seat on the open patio without a reservation, but if its full be prepared to wait. Patrons linger with good reason. Right on the lake, beside a beach where locals have recently taken up SUP and kite... 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.
