Lovely mid-week special occasion dinner at Smack Dab. The creative food presentation, portion size, and taste were all excellent (lamb and steelhead trout entrees). Service was knowledgeable, attentive and well timed. We did, however, find it curious to enter the dining room through the sports bar. With a view and menu like that, a separation of the two would enhance the dining atmosphere. Still, a delicious overall experience and we would happily return.
Would request a table next time- booth was a little tight
The staff are friendly and efficient and the ambience makes it a great place to meet with friends for a casual but delicious meal. The lakeview is up close and personal. All in all one of the best places in town to meet.
I have become a regular customer and enjoy everything and my favourite is the wine flight, pizzas and desserts as well as the option of homemade ice creams and sorbets.
Excellent as Usual
Very enjoyable, nice location , excellent service
We visited on a Sunday for lunch. Two mature females and our over 90 Mum. The things we liked most were the view, excellent menu, tasty food, good service and non intrusive but trendy music. The portions were large and filling. Prices were good but smaller portions with smaller price options for seniors would be preferred.
There is a $29 set menu with either appetizer/main or main/desert. No option fir appetizer and desert which was our preference. As none of the set menu items interested us, we ordered off the menu and had seafood chowder, steamed muscles with pita/naan (enough for two), Green salad with prawns, arugula salad and sour cherry cheesecake. Apparently you can request the salad as a side but we didnt see any mention of this. The desert cheesecake was good, but small considering how large the appetizers and entree were.
We booked online and selected “birthday” but no mention was made and no candle arrived with the cake. This was mildly dissapointing as we expected some quiet acknowledgement for my Mum who didn’t want a fuss, but a candle would have been nice.
I’m going back this week with a friend for her birthday and will see if this was normal or an oversight.
Great restaurant on the lake, just wish they had more nutrient dense menu options.
Everyone really enjoyed their food. Lots to eat. Burgers were hyge. Pasta was wonderful and live the view. Great place for a quiet lunch.
The scenery is excellent! Right on the lake. Great food!
Not much selection.
Experienced revised new menu. Glad that hamburgers were not listed! Food was served in hot skillet, well presented, tasty comfort food great for a rainy cool night. Quieter environment great for conversation without yelling. Will return without question
Service was exceptional. Food was hot and timely. Veggies were so so. Eldente with a lot of crunch. Did not meet the knife test. Pasta smelt like a fish dish which if fresh would not have noticed. The veal and lamb was great. We had a lovely evening and that's what mattered. Hard to be on top of everything.
I could sign it Gordon Ramsey(which I'm not) but if asked I will tell the truth.
Been to this place many times. Food is always good,good selection of beer and wine.
One of the best servers in town works at Smack Dab and we were lucky enough to have her as our server.......Cathy is truly amazing and has worked there for years. She made my moms 83 Rd birthday very special.
An enjoyable evening with good food, wine and great service. This place will be high on my list for all seasons.
Lovely place to go for all occasions. Enjoyed our meals and the scenery. Beautiful location!
The food was amazing, the server was professional and provided great recommendations. I would recommend the mussels, the veal and fettuccine! Would be happy to come back!
We were staying at the resort and thought it made sense to have a birthday celebration dinner while we were there. We weren't disappointed. Everything was great. Especially the mussel on tomato sauce. We dreamed of drinking the mussel sauce straight out of the pot - amazing!
Smack Dab has a great patio, fabulous view, a good basic comfort food. The prices are too high for the cuisine though - it's charing 4-star pricing for 3-star food. The service leaves a lot to be desired though. Our order was messed up a lot - vegetarian meal came with prawns. Fries were plain forgotten. Appetizers arrived at the same time as mains. Waitress doubled down on the bad service by trying to tell us that we miss-ordered... vegetarians are pretty good about not ordering prawns...
So, other that the prices being 30% over what they should be, and the our particular waitress being awful, the food is good and the view is great.
