We found out the day before Thanksgiving weekend that Smack Dab put on a traditional turkey dinner (also at Christmas time). They were able to get us into a late setting for the Sunday evening. The 5 of us all rated the 3 courses (soup,...More

We had dinner here upon our first night arrival and enjoyed the food , service and sights very much. It was a bit windy, but the wait staff were kind enough to offer us blankets to keep warm, while we enjoyed our meal outdoors.

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.
