Ranked #117 of 1 287 Restaurants in Rotterdam
Description: Nothing smells as good, nothing tastes as good. There's nothing quite like a tender roast chicken. In the afternoon, evening and at night - grilled chicken always tastes good. We're all about top quality grilled chicken. We can roast forty chickens simultaneously on our cool rotisserie, the largest in the Netherlands. And we have more on the Scharrels & Schuim menu: chicken soup, wrap filled with grilled chicken thighs and barbecue sauce, a serving of chicken nuggets, various sizes Caesar salad. And chicken salon, the counterpart of the Rotterdam 'kapsalon'. One particular eye-catcher is the antique scale. The terrace features large picknick tables, ideal to enjoy a meal, beer and the weather. Spread over two floors, Scharrels & Schuim has a seating capacity of one hundred guests. Ten specialty beers are available on tap including Grimbergen and Peroni, triple the pleasure per bottle. The best gin tonics in Rotterdam are served on the top floor.

Fellow business traveler: we have all been here. Road trip took 50% longer than expected. You arrive tired, hungry and in a bad mood due to the traffic. You know what you want: food you recognize; beer-a-plenty; leave full, happy, and slightly impaired. Check, check, and check! Great beer selection, including 5 beer taster. My favorite was the Strafe Hendrik Tripel (ordered 2 large ones thereafter). Had the 1/2 rotisserie chicken with fries. Familiar, finger-friendly, and definitely tasty and filling. Mission accomplished.

Big shout out to Anna the bartender. She was getting it! Pouring beers, washing glasses, and making recommendations! I'll be back tomorrow night to drink!

Restaurant is looking good from outside but food is not as good as the the expectations.

Interior are warm and welcome you with a wood forniture and walls. Chickens (is what you go there to eat...) are grilled on the windows so to attach the customers, and it is nice.... but... and seeing other positive feedback I may have been unlucky, but this is my feedback of my experience (Lunch time during the week - not very crowded):
1) service was poor compare to the price: prices are a bit higher than average, but I thought they were justified but the nice place and "good-looking" chicken :-).
We waited quite a while to be served. I ordered 2 beers, and they brought wrong one (then they corrected).
2) One of the 1/2 grilled chicken was not cooked enough so we returned, and to be honest they took out of the bill, ...

...still for restaurant that basically propose only grilled chicken: long wait, poor service and not well cooked chicken is bad...
I would have given 2 stars, but, as they took out the returned chicken from the bill without any problem, I gave then 3... still an experience I will personally not repeat.

Il ristorante appare bello, arredamento e pareti in legno, pollo arrosto che si cucina a vista. Vi sa per mangiare pollo...

Detto questo, e viste le recensioni positive, devo dire che sono stato probabilmente sfortunato. Sono andato a pranzo durante la settinama e questa è l'esperperchè il servizio è stato scarso (ordinato da bere e mi hanno portato i drink sbagliati) notice the restaurants and the

Good place for a drink and food. Good menu. The chicken is the specialty here. Friendly, fast service and delicious food. A short walk from the Holiday Inn Express. Mingled amongst many restarurants, with seating indoors and outdoors.

Yummy chicken but a bit greasy. Good chips. Service always slow but always busy. Maybe would go back.

If you want chicken, this is the place you’re loooking for. It has indoor and outdoor seating space and it’s an excellent choice for lunch on a sunny afternoon. We were a group of friends and ordered chicken burgers, chicken salads and pulled chicken sandwiches with sides of chips.

The food was good and tasty. However, the waiter, a guy in his late thirties with a bunch of tattoos on his neck, wasn’t the best. He took annoying a long time to get the orders down, presented the food to us in the wrong order and forgot to bring the chips. My friend, after having asked for the chips again and waited for over 30 min, asked his once more. The waiter was rude and answered back in a sharp tone “it’s really busy today. The fries are on their way” only to watch him walk and order them from the counter as it seemed he forgot that two times ina row. He forgot to bring the order, didn’t order them after he was reminded and on top of that was showing a rude attitude to the customer for simply asking nicely about what he ordered. That was the worst service and attitude ever.
