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

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

Had lunch on the deck with friends and had a lovely time. The view of the lake and sitting lakeside is fantastic. Our lunch was ok- four of us all had something different and there wasn’t one dish that was outstanding. I had the tofu...and farrow vegan bowl that was so over garlicky that I barely could eat it. I won’t order a dish that has garlic in the description as I don’t like garlic and I get ill after eating it. No mention of garlic in the description of the dish on the menu There was so much garlic in this that I removed over two tablespoons of sliced garlic . I said something to our server and she was I different about it. I also called after lunch to talk to the manager and left a message but haven’t heard back two days later. It’s a shame the food is mediocre the setting is so niceMore

Great place for patio, and view on the water. The food is average to great depending on what you order. Happy hour needs more options!! I found the "covid" cleaning not up to par, as we were all sitting there watching the fellow wiping the...tables with spray bottle but that was all. No chair handles or any other things.More

First the positives. Great location, nice view, decent service. But, the food was a huge disappointment. Probably one of the worst hamburgers I’ve ever had at a restaurant. For $19 I got a thin, grey looking, pre made and previously frozen pattie that was tasteless...in a bun that was drenched in some type of sauce. Accompanied by a small cup of sad looking fries that appeared to be bits and pieces from the bottom of a serving tray. Absolutely terrible. My wife’s salad was ok but the extra $10 for 4 small shrimp was a bit unreasonable. I know that hotel restaurants normally count on the business from hotel guests and so can usually get by if they don’t measure up to some of the better stand alone eateries but I can’t imagine this place would have many repeat customers.More

Amazing view. Went for breakfast which was above average... again, amazing view of the lake! Sat on the patio. Lots of umbrellas.

I'm sorry Smack DAB because you are my first bad review. I reserved a table for four people to celebrate two birthdays on OpenTable. It stated online that there was no guaranteed for patio seating because it was weather permitting (It was a beautiful day...with no rain), I called the restaurant and requested the patio which the hostess confirmed would be no problem. When we arrived at the restaurant, the hostess seated us smack dab in the middle of the restaurant where all the servers and customers had to walk past. When I approached the hostess she said their was a note on my profile about patio seating, but the reservation after us also requested the patio and she felt bad moving them(?) but would speak with the manager. Eventually the manager on duty brought us to a table on the patio but treated us poorly, making the table feel as if we were a nuisance wasting her time. The manager sat us in a corner by the servers station where they placed all their dirty dishes, refilled water etc, while a beautiful six top table beside the water sat empty for half our dinner (later it was sat with two people). Unfortunately our birthday dinners weren't what we were hoping they would be due to the poor management, lack of care and unpleasant view. On the positive side my father said his steak was one of the best steaks he's eaten and also one of the most inexpensive.. so bravo kitchen for that.More
