The food is good and the view is amazing. It's a good place for brunch (buffet) and in the summer, the patio is amazing.

My mom and I were hoping to have a nice lunch out, so we went here, to Smack Dab. Sadly to say, it was one of the most unsatisfying places I have ever been to. The food was horrid, and the service was even worse....More

We made reservations but when we arrived our table was still occupied by a previous customer. I guess there were no other tables so we waited about 20 minutes past our reservation time before we were seated. After that service was prompt and cheerful. They...More

One of the largest and most beautiful outdoor patios right on Lake Okanogan. The staff are very friendly, the drinks are always perfectly made, and the food is outstanding. Plus there's plenty of parking.

I try to understand the automatic gratuity when there are 8 or more. It makes the waiter / waitress work harder. Well at least it should! I don't totally understand the logic, as if other vocations work harder.... they don't necessarily get paid more. We...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.
