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.
Paying 30$ for a salad was crazy. Also had my drink taken away without asking and it wasn’t finished. Over priced for quality. Could improve on value and communication.
Best food ever!
Our overall visit was fine. The food was good. What was not good was the length of time it took for someone to come and ask if we would like another beverage, and it was almost an hour before we got our food.
Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch on Sunday March 31. We were in Kelowna for a special celebration and I would definitely eat there again.
The food was way to salty. Servers were not that friendly, like they were on edge. Wouldn’t blame them as there were several bouts of loud high pitch noise that would go for a minute or more during the 1.5 hour we were there. It came out of no where and was unsettling. Smack Dab is not known for bad service or food but it was off by quite a bit this time. This affected our experience as we didn’t enjoy our dining experience as much as we had hoped.
Ladies brunch today.
We loved our experience. The staff is so pleasant. The hostess was lovely. Our server was Jess and she was amazing. She kept our coffee coming and we didn’t have to ask for a thing. She was wonderful.
The food was delicious! Interesting breakfast choices and everything was hot. Great job. We will be back 👍🏼
Not for the price .... the restaurant was not busy lots of task oriented servers cleaning up and appeared to be less customer focused ...disappointed. However compliments to the Cheif ... it’s unfortunate that the very well prepared meal was undermined by the experience.
Wonderful lunch! Great service, (unfortunately I don’t recall her name), Lots of food, we probably could have split the crispy chicken sandwich (we both took half home).
I would have given 5 stars for price except the server offered to exchange the fries for a salad for my friend. No mention of extra cost and it was an additional $3. I think such things should be communicated.
It was a place to eat and drink. Beyond that, not much of anything to recommend.
Awesome lunch and super service!😎
Pleasantly surprised at just how good the food was. Both me and my friend had great meals and they had a bubbly/rosie flight of five tasters on sale that worked perfect for us to split. The view of the lake is spectacular and the service was just slow/quick enough to allow us time to catch up while we waited for our food. Both my friend and I had some dietary requirements/food allergies to work around and the chef went above and beyond to accommodate us.
It was good, food was reasonable. The overall experience was good.
Great food, great atmosphere and good service. Very nice spot and would go back again.
The food was excellent. Our one complaint about the food was after the main we were left hungry,whereas some bread would have been lovely especially for the cod broth. The service however was slow, and once a couple of the party had finished desserts their plates were removed before the other couple had finished.
Really enjoyed it. We thought the happy hour food choices might be a bit more extensive but we ordered share plates from the menu and they were terrific.
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.
