Stopped in here on 1/20/09 with some co-workers during a visit to my company for a training session the following day. I told my manager to "take us to a good beer bar." And that he did!
Before parking the car on a side street, I saw Blue Point, Harpoon and Victory signs outside the building, so I knew they'd have at least something good. To my surprise, they had a fantastic beer menu with about 20 or so taps and four beer engines, not to mention a pretty extensive bottle selection. Everything was documented and up-to-date on their menu. Their vast selection included a wide varieties of breweries and styles, ranging from DIPAs to Imperial Stouts and everything in between. They definitely had something for everyone, as my co-workers opted for a nice cross section of styles, including a Belgian Tripel (Sly Fox Incubus), Imp. Stout (Capt'n Lawrence Espresso Stout), DIPA (Two Bros. Hop Juice), Guinness, etc. They also had Victory Old Horizontal and other barleywines and strong ales. Nice selection overall.
Service was friendly and prompt. I also spoke to one of the servers for a while about Captain Lawrence and beer in general, and he was extremely knowledgeable. I didn't try and food, so I can't comment there.
Glad I had the chance to stop by a good beer bar during my brief visit to the area. I'll definitely stop in again if and when I ever come back to the area for work-related reasons.

This jawn was so much better than what I expected. Located right in downtown White Plains, parking is not too hard to find.
Lazy Boy is sandwiched between a bunch of other pubs, bars and restaurants. It is like the Restaurant Row of White Plains. The wife and I sat outside at the sidewalk tables, kind of nice despite the road traffic and the sirens blaring.
The draft list is rather massive: 53 taps, plus bottles. Allagash White, Bell's Two Hearted, Brew Bus, Dogfish 90, Coronado Sock Knocker, Dogfish Birra and Midas Touch, Elysian Sub Pop, Evil Twin Falco, Founders Double Trouble, Thirsty BB Siberian, Nimkasi Quantum, Stillwater Why Can't IBU?... the bottle list didn't show anything outrageously interesting, and they do charge sixteen dollars for Goose Island Bourbon County.
Service was nice and prompt and the bar food was alright. Jalapeno poppers, why not. I don't expect to be back in White Plains often, but if I am, I will certainly stop here again.

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
