Our mission is to provide a unique seafood oyster experience, delivering fresh and locally sourced oysters, shrimp and accoutrements with expert shucking technique.

About Us

Founded by Gary McCready in 2017, G-Shucks & Co. serves up fresh and locally sourced seafood for local events. McCready, who has been professionally shucking for over 10 years, got his start in the heart of Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square at A.bar + kitchen, before moving to Jose Garces’ acclaimed saloon The Olde Bar in Old City, Philadelphia. Piquing his interest in event catering, Gary quickly learned the ropes of the luxury catering industry and became recipient of the Jose Garces Excellence Award with exceptional service and authentic Latin hospitality in 2017.

Beyond operating G-Shucks & Co, Gary continues his shucking tenure at the Oyster House on Sansom Street in Center City where he loves sharing the fun of oysters with his regulars. He also continues his professional education with Oyster Master Guild.

G-Shucks & Co started as a small “shucking with friends” idea and has grown into an event and wedding business that is a joy to experience and operate. Gary and his team, Mackenzie and Jazmine, are excited to bring you a fresh experience at your next event.

Our Clients

Gary and his team are the best of the best. We worked with Gary for my 30th birthday, and he was the talk of the party. Gary was incredibly professional and responsive throughout the entire planning process and brought such a positive energy to the party. All of the party guests raved about Gary’s work – the oysters were the best we’ve ever had! Highly recommend Gary and his team for any event.

We had G-Shucks in our home for our holiday party that year and it was a huge hit.  The food was delicious, the presentation was superb, and Gary was so easy to work with.  We want Gary to be a fixture at our parties going forward.  I couldn’t recommend him highly enough
