After our first stay at the Manteo last year we were excited to return this past weekend - particularly for the meals at SmackDAB. The menu is varied, fresh and delicious. Don't miss their breakfast buffet. Where some breakfast buffets have a wide variety of mediocre offerings SmackDAB has a more concise buffet where items ar prepared in small batches,... More

I have always enjoyed lunch and dinners at Smack Dab. And the regular breakfasts there. Today, when I wanted to treat my husband to a nice pre-valentines breakfast, I was told you only served buffet. It was very disappointing. It felt like one of the quick "Breakfast included in room price" buffet. If I was staying at the hotel and... More

Visited on a Monday night. A nice surprise to hear it was happy hour all day. $5 house wines and $7 pints of lagers. $5 off crazy fries and pizzas. Both were excellent!! Also must try the house made ice creams. I had the pecan caramel coconut brownie swirl. Yum! $3.25 for a large scoop. Service excellent as well. Highly... More

I travel to Kelowna on a regular basis for both work and play, and no trip is complete without a breakfast experience at Smack DAB. I used the word experience because that is what this restaurant delivers. It is a beautiful setting, the staff is terrific, and the food is really exceptional. Especially the bacon! Denny's pricing in a premium... More

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.

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.
