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.

My favourite restaurant, specially in the summer. Sitting out on the deck watching the kitesurfing and the duck. Excellent food and service. Been there with my family and other times with friends. For dinners and lunches.

We go here often as you can’t beat the lake view and the happy hour drinks. They have the best red sangria!
Pizza is yummy and their french fries are delicious. We’ve tried many menu items with no complaints about the food. Always well seasoned and tasty.
Normally the chairs are clean and the restaurant seems clean however the last two times I was seated in dirty chairs and then a booth! I had to wash my jacket last time cause as I said to the waitress, “it looks like someone had been shot”! Waitress replied, ‘it’s on our list to get to it’. I don’t know if it was years of wine or sauce but I was really disgusted at how dirty the back of the booths are. Please clean them or cover them in a material you can actually wipe clean!
Would hate to stop going to this restaurant due to housekeeping issues.
I always take out of town guests and friends there. Everyone enjoys.

Hello 990raquelt,

Thank you for your review. We are happy to read how much you enjoy our menu items!

As for our housekeeping issues, this was an unfortunate incident. We take pride in not only our menus, service, and atmosphere, we definitely take pride in the cleanliness of the restaurant. I am speechless that this happened. I would love if you could contact me directly so I can discuss this further with you.

Thank you again for your feedback and I look forward to discussing this further with you.

House red wine was not bad. Nice view of the lake with a large outdoor area for warmer weather. The brick oven "Maui" pizza was very good, with bacon rather than ham.

Hello Randycoeur!

Thank you for your review! I agree that we do have a nice view. Have you enjoyed it on our patio? Its pretty amazing. Make note that seating is first come first serve on our patio, so come early to get that seat, as it fills fast. I will let Chef know that you enjoyed the change of our Maui pizza. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to hosting you again.
