People Still Talk About the Oyster Bar

Delaware Oyster Company was the hit of our wedding in September 2019! We had an amazing backyard wedding, and the cocktail hour featuring the Oyster Bar is what my guest still talk about. They were on time, professional, and shucked their hearts out. If you want something a little different that your guest will remember I highly recommend !

Unique food option

We used Delaware Oyster for our wedding and it was perfect. George was great to work with as well. We choose oysters, shrimp and crab claws. My guests were blown away. They also brought decor, tables, etc which just added to the event. Our wedding photo's captured everything perfectly. The seafood was fresh and delicious! We loved them so much, we recommended them to a friend and they also used them for their wedding! It's just such a unique way to make your wedding even more special for you and your guests! Highly recommend!

I have been in the seafood industry since the time I was a young boy, sorting crabs and shoveling ice for my Dad in his Fresh Seafood Market in Wilmington, DE. My passion for this industry blossomed over the years as my family business grew and I quickly became involved with the Local Oyster Grower's community and started building relationships with them directly on providing local consumers with a high quality experience. Focusing on the delivery of a fresh, properly shucked oyster, with knowledge and explanation behind it to ensure Delaware Oysters are represented in the best way possible.
