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

It was very good to see it open and improve. But over past 2-3 years, the food choices haven’t changed much and the food seems more and more on the salty side. Service is good. Parking can be a minor issue during the summer time....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.
