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.

Had heard marvelous things about this restaurant. Went for lunch with a friend and we both ordered the ribs and fries. The ribs tasted like they'd been sitting under a heat lamp for hours - dry, hard on the outside, chewy. Disappointing. To the credit of the restaurant, though, they brought us something different and comp'd the ribs. Probably would go back, but will try something different off the menu.
The girls had a great night with great drinks and amazing food!
Great service, beautiful setting. Very small menu, food was disappointing.
Calimari special (not breaded)appetizer was delicious. I am still trying to figure out the duck dish... It was flavourful but extremely chewy (I needed a steak knife to cut it). I have been told that the restaurant's steaks are excellent so overall a good place to eat.
Food quality - tasty and good. I made reservations several weeks in advance - they placed us in a very busy location with lots of restaurant traffic passing by us. It is really, really, really noisy!!!
Our charcuterie appetizer was fantastic. All mains were very tasty and beautifully plated. We had lamb, steak, veal and steelhead. The trout was a bit disappointing as it was quite strong flavoured and that overtook the whole plate. The gnocchi on this dish was flavourless. Our server seemed a bit amateurish kneeling at the table and not aware of the vintages of wine. She was willing to check but opened our wine and left the lip foil in quite a mess. We did not have dessert as there was not a super chocolatey choice!
Breakfast bar layout could be improved as the cold food buffet is located around the corner from the hot food bar. The location of the cold food buffet is not obvious and I was not aware of it until the chef let me know of its location.
Had the breakfast buffet, overall the food was ok. The selection was a bit lacking. Our waitress was attentive and good with our children.
Nice anniversary diner. Beautiful view .The food was warm and tasty. Service excellent.
We were vacationing at the Manteo Resort and had dinner twice at Smack Dab Restaurant. Food was
delicious and the view and outside dining is outstanding. Would defiinitely return.
Cold attitude and service... noting wrong but very Cold
We had someone in a wheelchair in our party. I gave advance notice of that when I made the reservation, but the hostess seemed confused as to where to seat us, which made the person in the wheelchair feel uncomfortable and unwelcome. The food taste and quality were mediocre - not what I was expecting.
This was our first time to have dinner here. What a pleasant surprise! Although the wind had picked up too much to sit outside, we were seated at a corner window where we could enjoy the view. The dinner options were great and the food was delicious and beautifully presented! Will definitely dine here again soon!
Great food! Good service. Fair value for the price.
Meal quality did not match previous experiences. Rack of lamb lacked flavour, (cooked in oven??; not on grill), food plate was cold, vegetables cool and not tasty. Quality control obviously not in place.
To me, telling me I am on a resort means a standard of care had been reached. The restaurant does not reach that standard. In cleanliness, it seemed to have been forgotten to wash the end of the row of banquets. Regarding service, our waiter knew the menu but struggled with describing what the flavours of the dish should be. Delivery of the dish was slow so that my meal was room temperature. My partners dish was under seasoned and the pasta over cooked. The flavours were there, so you leave befuddled, parts were good and parts are bad.
Good food and very nice service
Always enjoy your restaurant, however usually come for lunch and sit outside. Weather was bad, so sat inside at dinner. Very pricey, but we enjoyed our meals.
Always wonderful - we go every year, while visiting Kelowna ! Always great service, great view, and yummy food.
We were staying at Manteo Resort to celebrate our anniversary with our kids and decided to go to Smack Dab for dinner. We received delicious food and excellent service - highly recommend the lamb!
Beautiful view from the patio to Lake Okanagan. Great server. Really hot but lots of umbrellas for shade. Nice evening.
Had a great afternoon with the girls on the patio - so much fun and the servers were great, and the food yummy and the happy hour prices were good. Awesome way to spend a summer afternoon /evening.
Great patio. I thought the menu was a little limited in that there were large meals and starters but there didn’t seem to be much in between. Good atmosphere but I don’t think I’d eat here in the winter. Outdoor atmosphere is much better.
We took an elder relative out for her birthday. She just loved it. We enjoyed it very much as well. It was too hot to sit out, which is my favorite way to dine, so I would love to come back sometime when we can do that. The view is spectacular, of course. We are from the lower mainland, so it will have to be another trip.
Food, view and service were great. Just what we expected from the reviews and recommendations. Would definitely come back
Food was decent but service was atrocious at our table. Lots of other tables in view getting what seemed to be adequate to good service. However, our waitress was terrible. Drinks left unfilled, requested items weren’t brought (had to be reminded several times), little to no knowledge on daily specials, and we were ignored throughout entire meal. Lots of servers in view but none attending to us.
What a great place! Great menu for the whole family. Interesting and creative. We loved everything from appies to desert. Gorgeous view.
Very limited selection on the breakfast buffet. No option to order breakfast from the menu.
Great place right on the water - the food is excellent and the people-watching is outstanding. We’ll be back.
I reserved a table for 4 for my husbands birthday. It was pouring rain out so we sat inside. Service was good, my friend ordered the pasta and they forgot to add the chicken with it, they offered when the food came but she declined as she wanted to eat at the same time as us, she was a little disappointed. Other than that the experience was ok, if we come back we would like to sit on the patio.
The food here always is above what we expect. It’s high quality food without being to fancy but making you feel happy after. The bartenders know how to make some aw some mixed drinks. Over all a great place with an amazing view.
Was on vacation and came for a quick date night as I heard good reviews. The food was excellent and large portions along with a good selection of local wines. The restaurant has an amazing patio as well, unfortunately I didn't get to enjoy it as it was raining but will definitely be back.
Although I've tried a lot of the wines, I loved that they offer flights of wine (5 1.5oz glasses of either white or red) and its a nice way to enjoy and compare with a meal. My husband had the beer flight and raved about the 49th Parallel Radler!
Love the atmosphere, but would like to see more casual food selections such as gourmet salads, fish & chips, fish tacos, burgers.
We were seated across from the kitchen which was fine but without menus and service for 10-15 minutes. The waitress came by with the menus but no wine list which took another 15 minutes
The food was great but the service needs to be improved.
We found really creative food using unique and interesting flavors. Not your usual “boring” food.
My husband and I went for Father's Day Brunch. Took about 10 min for our server to come to our table. Not sure if, due to understaffing, he was really busy. Still, an unacceptable time to wait to be greeted and the restaurant was less than 50% full.
Food was OK nothing extremely good or not good. Selection of food very limited.
I would recommend Smack Dab as we have been there quite often for lunch and the food has been really good and service exceptional.
Disappointed in the brunch.
We went for breakfast buffet for Father’s Day. They did not add any special items to the buffet and the food was awful. Selection was very poor and the scrambled eggs had a disgusting sauce on them. There is no effort into making the food appealing in taste or presentation. The muffins were stale, the bacon was not crispy, the breakfast pizza was undercooked, and the sausages had no flavour. This is the exact same breakfast buffet we had a year ago, which was equally awful, but hoped it would be better considering the occasion (and we didn’t realize we had to make reservations over a month in advance anywhere good). Lesson learned. We will never go back for breakfast again.
The view is spectacular. The food choices for the buffet were okay. The scrambled eggs weren't very good, taste/texture from a package. Would have liked to see some gluten free options.
Went for breakfast and food was good but not $30 worth. No ability to order eggs any style. Coffee was very good but service was poor. Had to wait for coffee then had to wait more for cream & sugar. Got our meals and more waiting for cutlery. No salt & pepper on the table so had to wait for that; then server came buy to ask if we were done with the S & P and took it away. Was there only the 1 set available for all?? Won’t take the chance for lunch or dinner because of this.
Open table reservation was a joke as we booked the meal at 6 am, with reservation for 9:45, restaurant said they never rec’d our reservation - so not impressed with Open Table. Restaurant was able to seat us.
