Only complaint, we made reservations a few months in advance, knowing we would be there for Christmas, and knowing there would not be a lot of options to eat out Christmas day. They sat us right in front of the kitchen, it was noisy and busy, and rather disappointing. Food was good.

We went here for lunch today and weren't that impressed. The food was fine, perhaps even good but not great. The view of the lake from the restaurant was fabulous. The menu was pricey for the quality. I had okay pizza, my uncle had ok Caesar salad, my cousin had a good deep fried chicken burger - she said the... More

We have been here a few times, the food is ok, the fish can be over cooked, they have a large selection of beer, and it is located right on lake. If you had a large group, they have lots of room here.

Done out of towns friends were staying in the adjacent building and we quickly suggested we would meet them at Smack DAB - if they grabbed a patio table. Good move. It was a warm late summer evening - the views great, the beer sampler tray a hit - food good and tasty. All in all, a good Okanagan experience.

Lost our reservation, and really not concerned about it. Had guests in from Vancouver and Texas thought it would be nice location by the lake. We had reserved on the patio by the lake. Food at best was marginal restaurant was so loud and crowded you could not hear people speak at our own table. They are lucky they have... More

Do not go here with a group! We came with 7 people on a slow night after the dinner rush. They had atleast 10 open tables but refused to allow us to sit together as a party (no moving tables together, despite the emptiness). Apparently if the one large group both is being used they prefer to watch you walk... More

There was 6 of us in for a later dinner. We let the waiter know we would like some drinks right away. He brought waters, took our order & went away. It took almost 12 minutes for him to return after we observed the bartender carrying our drink order over to him. We received our drinks, he took our food... More

The food is great at this restaurant with amazing servers. We had a table at the windows so the enjoyment of our meal was enhanced by the splendid view of the lake.

You can't go wrong with any choice on the menu. Great views from almost every table or booth in the place. The bartender will make "ANYTHING" you want at the bar. Just ask and it's yours. Lots of smiles, lots of suggestions, lots of answers about food choices for you. A definite place to return to.

Description
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.
