Popular White Plains watering hole. Selection is always good. About 35 taps and TONS of assorted and varied bottles.(Bottles are stored in basement, which is reached by a hole in the floor behind the bar) Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders. Decent Pub grub. This place is a medium sized rectangular shaped room with a pool table in the rear. A lot of TVs, give this place a sports bar feel whenever there is action in sports going on. In the thin beer world of Westchester county, this place stands out. Its a real beer place worthy of BA beer appreciation and consumption. Worth a visit to see whats fresh on tap.

Good burgers and other pub fare.
Great craft beer selection. Probably the best in the area, usually around 40+ on tap.
Prices are good for the area.
Overall, the place is a little dark, even at lunch. But If your in the area it's worth a try, especially if you are in to specialty beers.

The food is the downside to this bar, located a few blocks from the malls in White Plains. Very good beer selection. Plenty on draft and a lot more in bottles.
The bar does get very loud and it's sometimes hard to get a drink at the bar. Table service is good (when you can get a table).

Kicking myself for not having tried this place out sooner. Really nice selection of taps and a very nice bottle menu as well. It's a drinking bar, plain and simple. Didn't try any food as I had just come from an excellent dinner around the corner at the Argentinian Steakhouse. If you're expecting to get a beer education from the wait staff forget it (as other reviewers have stated). The simple question of how many taps they had was met with a blank stare....and that was the bartender. She knew absolutely nothing about what she was serving. It wasn't a busy night, and she never once asked me if I wanted something else. But, if you know your beers or are just inclined to throw a virtual dart at the beer menu and try something, you can't go wrong. I was there during Kona Brewery's tap take over (6 taps) and I got lei'd...

The first time I stumbled upon the Lazy Boy Saloon I was taken completely by surprise. Situated in the midst of over-priced pubs and late night clubs, I found this place to be a refreshing option. This place has a consistently great taplist and a deep (although not well tracked and updated) cellar. The prices are quite reasonable for the area and the quality of the beer they serve. I try to make a stop here every time I'm in the area. Definitely worth checking out.

This is my go-to place in White Plains for good beer, and I would safely say this is one of those places that served good beer before it was as "popular" as it is now..I think they opened in 1994 or 1997. Really great selection of craft brews on tap that are always changing...there must be at least 20 on tap at any given time. Great bottle selection, including rare vintages.
Food is decent pub-style food, but I think they were voted best wings in Westchester at some point since their doors opened...
My only real complaint is I wish they kept their beer menu up-to date. They only update it seemingly every 45 days or so! They never have the same selection in-house as they do on-line.
So Lazy Boy staff..dont be so Lazy and update your beermenus.com page more often!!

I try to go to the lazyboy when ever I get the chance. They are always having brewery nights from founders takeover to lagunitas night. I love being able to get vintage 2009 bigfoot. The icing on the cake is the food is exceptional. If it wasnt for the crappy parking that is white plains id be there every weekend. Plenty of taps and their very own beer menu that you can skim through divided by country and style. Some might find it a bit pricey, but its the norm for NY bar prices

I was in town on business last weekend, decided to grab some lunch so I checked out BA for places in the area and found The Lazy Boy Saloon. I gave it a shot and it did not disappoint. They had a good selection of draft and bottled beers and even a few vintages (where I picked up my Rare BCS).
I sat at the bar and chatted with the bartender about good beer, he was informative and very nice, hooking me up with some 2008 vintage Samichlause that was on the house and exceptional.
I will be returning in a couple of weeks and I will definitely be returning for some beer and food as soon as I get into town. And maybe even pick up another bottle of Rare BCS if they still have any available.

Stopped in here for the first time yesterday with soccerman7, baconsausage, and grassblue after hitting up Captain Lawrence. There is a nice old wood bar along the right wall of the joint with several TV's tuned to sports games. The left side of the joint is mainly table seating with some TV's as well. Since we had a group of 7 we sat at a long table on the left side towards the back by the kitchen. This probably factored into my atmosphere score a bit as I might have liked sitting at the bar a bit better.
Quality of the beer was pretty good and selection was vast considering they had about 36 tap lines and a huge bottle selection. No super hard to find gems or anything, but lots of solid American Craft and import choices non the less.
Service was pretty bad....there was a small language barrier (very small) btw the table and the wait staff, the wait staff knew nothing about the beers really, and the waiter managed to drop some plates on the ground and shoot marinara sauce up the entire back of my jacket (which was on my chair) as well as on me. He never acknowledged that this happened or apologized either. He just kept moving in hopes that I wouldn't notice until I got out of the restaurant but when sauce droplets start spritzing up your back and even land on your head (bald spot) its hard to not notice. Lucky for them I am cool as a cucumber and would rather make a positive impression on the people I share the table with than curse out the wait staff. Then about 10 minutes later the waiter came back to clear more plates off the table and dropped a bunch of balled up napkins that were on one plate onto my lap.
Food was fairly average pub food but the wings were notably good and available in a few styles that kept them interesting like buffalo, garlic, tequila, etc.
I wouldn't go out of my way to stop here again but wouldn't be opposed to it if I was in the area. I understand that it is unlikely that the staff drops food dishes and spills sauce on every patron so my review score will be an outlier..
