Steak was not great, was tough and lacked quantity. Service was excellent!

We ordered two of their gourmet pizzas. One pizza came with a white sauce with chicken ad vegetables. The other came with a tomato sauce with Italian meat and figs. We shared both amongst the four of us and we all liked both pizza. There was even 4 slices left to take home for a midnight snack.

We felt very safe and comfortable. The food was delicious (highly recommend the shrimp taco-yum) and the service was very good. The waiter was awesome.

We have always enjoyed the waterfront dining experience at Smack Dab. The service from staff has always been very good. This visit all guests had the teriyaki quinoa salad and it was found to be underwhelming. The chicken protein was dry having spent to much time on the grill. The dressing was scant to say the least. Didn't want to complain in front of out of town guests who found the meal to be okay. I was disappointed in the meal at Smack Dab.

I took my dad to this restaurant 4 years ago and he loved it so much, on his return trip this year, I brought him back.

Kathy (not sure if it’s Cathy with a ‘C’ or ‘K’ but I’ve used both now so hoping not to offend) our server is an absolute a professional! Her attention to detail, the conversation she created during our stay, her ability to attend to any matter with grace and her ability to read people created the most enjoyable part of ours experience and is honestly a lost art with most servers. I will return just for her service alone!

The food honestly took 2nd place this visit, not because our dishes were not prepared to at an extremely high standard but as the service was so outstanding the food was slightly overshadowed… which is such a compliment and I hope you all take it as such. We had the saffron muscles and the spaghetti bolognese, both of these dishes were delicious. The bolognese was simple and well balanced and was exactly what a I try to create in my red sauce and
the muscles were truly stunning. With the combination of all the ingredients including saffron, coconut milk, shallots, tomatoes, with just slight heat, they are to die for! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!!!

7of us went for the mussels and were really disappointed. They were tiny, not like the big plump ones we are accustomed to. The bread was crumbly and not like we expected. A very disappointing experience.

We all came for the mussels that used to be "to die for" . Not anymore. There was so
little chorizo sausage in it you could hardly find a bit, the bread was ordinary and there was hardly any liquid in the pot to dip it in. Very disappointing for all 7 of us.
Maybe a new chef ???

However the shrimp tacos and burgers are still outstanding as is the pizza so we will continue to enjoy your restaurant.

We sat on the patio at Smack Dab and had a beautiful view of the lake and marina. Our server was great and a shout out to Allison for giving us a great table. I ordered the steelhead trout with mushroom risotto and asparagus and it was delicious! My husband ordered the Penne pasta with chicken. The guests we had ordered a lamb burger and a salad. The food was fresh, carefully prepared and delicious. We will definitely come back if we are in Kelowna again!

We went for our anniversary and had mentioned it while booking, yet no one acknowledged our special occasion. They even seated us in a dark corner. We were hoping for a view as it was also our first time there, oh well. Our server, who was also the bartender, was great! He was very friendly and upbeat. My husband got their burger and I had their steak. Now I get that they aren’t a steak house, but I’ve had better steaks for 40$. It tasted amazing so it was really sad that it was so tough. I was even breaking a sweat trying to cut through it. Overall, I’d probably only go back for drinks and an appy. Highly recommend the vanilla lager or sangria!

Food was OK, service was terrible. Our server just dumped our appetizer on the table and walked off... our dinners came out at the same time so we didn't get a chance to eat it. Lots of employees standing around chitchatting while making people wait to be seated.
Definitely not worth the money.

Clearer communication with regard to seating policy would have been appreciated. Being told in the morning at breakfast that our seating request for dinner that evening would not be a problem and then arriving for dinner and being told that because we were a party of 3 we couldn’t have the table we requested that morning was unacceptable!!

We went for our anniversary, and honestly, best meal we have had in a very, very long time!
We ordered the salmon, and New York strip, both were top shelf! German chocolate cake was absolutely delicious too!

We had the olives and flatbread for an appetizer, and it tasted great, but prob wouldn't order again, since the olives had pits... Not the most attractive thing to eat on a date, spitting them out. Everything else was so good though, still 5/5 stars!

Always a delicious meal at SmackDab. First time dining post-COVID. The staff there took every precaution possible to make it a safe dining environment. Tables are spaced out, service staff in masks, and sanitizer in the hotel lobby.

New York steak was incredibly good. Pairs well with the old fashioneds. My daughter had a sundae for dessert and it looked very good (she finished it all so must’ve tasted good).

Definitely come here if great food is what you’re looking for.
