A baby’s Baptismal Day is one of the most celebrated affairs by many Filipino Christian families. On this special day, family members and close friends get together to witness the child’s dedication unto the Lord. Godparents attend this solemn ceremony and give their blessings and vows to the child.
After the ceremony, the reception is held. This is usually a large celebration which involves plenty of food, drinks, and fun. My son Dante Lucas had his Dedication Day Reception at Gerry’s Grill in Newport City, Philippines. My husband and I are very happy with the way our event has turned out.

Why We Chose Gerry’s Grill Newport As Our Venue
At first, we thought of having our venue at home and hire a caterer. However, that would be tedious because we would have to clean up after our guests. For this reason, we decided to hold the venue at a restaurant. We made the right decision because we did not have to deal with the after-party mess. Right after the event, we went home and rested.
So after checking out restaurants nearby and online, we finally decided on Gerry’s Grill Newport as our venue. Why? I was impressed with their “worry-free all-in package”. Since we wanted a simple and intimate celebration, we only invited a few people. A few close and friends and relatives came to our event. In the Philippines, a “few” may translate to as many as fifty guests. All of our guests were served and accommodated well so I have no complaints.
Gerry’s Grill Menu Packages
My husband and I dropped by Gerry’s Grill Newport a month before the expected date of the dedication so that we could choose a menu package for our function. Gerry’s Grill is well-known for its sizzling plates and Filipino dishes. We chose their MENU C package, which cost Php 470 per person for a minimum of 50 pax. Remember that my son was dedicated in 2017, so it is best to check out Gerry’s Grill’s updated menu packages.
MENU C (2017):
Fried Chicken and Fries
Bottomless Iced Tea
Lucas’s Dedication Day
Our guests arrived as early as 2:30 P.M. and the restaurant readily accommodated them. At 3:00, the waiters served them with iced tea and water. Our program started at 4:00. After the short program, we all had our dinner, which was served buffet-style. I can say for sure that the guests were satisfied with the food. The food was served hot and everything was delicious. I also commend the waiters for giving prompt service.
Their function package included 20 balloons, a catering setup, trained servers, and a banner. I liked the way they decorated the place because the decorations were simple and organized.
Our event lasted for 3 hours, from 3 to 6 P.M. Since we rented their speaker and microphones, they charged us an additional Php500 for the electricity charge. The restaurant played children’s nursery rhymes as the background music. However, the manager offered to give us back the Php500 because their microphones were not working properly. I just told him to use it as a group tip for the servers.
Overall, our families and friends had a great time. I recommend Gerry’s Grill Newport to parents looking for a place to hold their child’s Christening/ Dedication Day reception.
