FORT MYERS, Fla. (May 23, 2013) – Red’s Fresh Seafood House & Tavern on Pine Island has received a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence award. The accolade, which honors hospitality excellence, is given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor, and is extended to qualifying businesses worldwide. Only the top-performing 10 percent of businesses listed on TripAdvisor receive this prestigious award.
To qualify for a Certificate of Excellence, businesses must maintain an overall rating of four or higher, out of a possible five, as reviewed by travelers on TripAdvisor, and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months. Additional criteria include the volume of reviews received within the last 12 months.
“Red’s is pleased to receive a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence,” said Red’s owner Bud LoCicero. “We strive to offer our customers a memorable experience and the freshest and highest quality products, and this accolade is evidence that our hard work is translating into positive reviews on TripAdvisor.”
“TripAdvisor is delighted to celebrate the success of businesses around the globe, from Sydney to Chicago, Sao Paulo to Rome, which are consistently offering TripAdvisor travelers a great customer experience,” said Alison Copus, Vice President of Marketing for TripAdvisor for Business. “The Certificate of Excellence award provides top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers.”
Red’s is well known for its always fresh, never frozen seafood. The house specialty, Red’s Steamer, is a mixture of shrimp, clams, oysters, mussels, Alaskan snow crab and Cajun sausage steamed with sweet onion, white wine, garlic and scampi butter, poured at your table out of steaming beer pitchers.
“Our one-of-a-kind process jets steam into pitchers brimming with a combination of fresh herbs, butter and shellfish,” said LoCicero. “This unique method infuses the taste of seafood and aromatics creating a perfect fresh-as-possible eating experience.”
While seafood is Red’s main feature, its menu also offers ribs, steak, chicken, salads, sandwiches, hamburgers, burritos and more.
Located at 10880 Stringfellow Road on Pine Island, just minutes from Cape Coral, Red’s is open for dinner seven days a week: Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m. An extensive wine menu and full bar are also available. Reservations are not accepted.
