I don't expect a foodie heaven in a hotel/restaurant. We were going to eat in town but Saturday night was rather busy and we were tired so we decided to settle for the resort's restaurant where we were staying. But this was not settling in...More

Dear MDS1886, Thank you for leaving us a review. It is nice to read that our 3 course turkey dinner was a hit and you were able to enjoy a traditional meal at Thanksgiving away from home. We hope to see you again soon.

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.
