Experience the original mobile raw oyster bar

Over these 20 years we have done oyster catering at many different occasions from weddings to private backyard parties. Red Oyster is the inventor of the mobile raw oyster bar. Why do we call it a mobile raw oyster bar? We go up to guests because we like to connect with people and make them happy with opening fresh oysters on the spot, especially for them. 

Guests enjoy themselves while being “oystertained” at the same time.  This way, our oystershuckers can have a real interaction with the people they share their oysters with, connect with them and delight them. With the mobile raw bar, we bring oysters straight to your guests, so that our professional oystertainers can share their enthusiasm and passion for oysters.

Red Oyster’s Oystertainers fill the room with energy, enthusiasm, and craftsmanship. And, of course, they can tell you everything about the delicious oysters that they select and shuck just for you. 

It’s a mobile raw oyster bar with a unique experience. Our oystershuckers will walk around at your party, entertain your guests, and open some fresh oysters on the spot. They will tell the guests some great oyster anecdotes and serve the oysters with the condiments you want. With our oyster catering service, we shuck oysters on the spot, at any location you choose; like a party at your house, a wedding, a bar mitzvah, a corporate event, or the annual summer outing.

Frequently Asked Questions

The number oysters you should get for your party depends on 3 factors: the Oystertaining time you’d like, the number of guests, and the location. On average we take into account 3 oysters per person. The minimum oyster order is 100 oysters, and our experts will work with you to make sure that you have all the oysters and Oystertainers (oystershuckers) you need to make your event a huge success.


Our Oystertainers open oysters on the spot as they move around the room, so there is no need to provide a table! They will bring the oysters in a cooler, and a custom Red Oyster backpack with all their equipment. All you need to provide is a small space to store the cooler and the backpack, and a garbage can for the empty shells. We’ll do the rest!


We prefer to serve up North East Coast and West Coast oysters in the USA. Most of our customers like the fresh oysters from ME, MA, CT, or PEI Canada. We are proud to have built up lasting, trusting relationships with our dedicated oyster farmers. After all, they are our partners in bringing you the best bivalves, and we work together to make sure that we provide you with the most delicious ones every time. Most of our oyster farmers have family-owned businesses that have been farming oysters for generations.
