COVID-19 policy

Dear Richard’s Customers,

Boise's Mayor lifted the mask mandate for Boise effective May 14, 2021. Finally, we are returning to normal and look forward to seeing your smiling faces!


We have the following protocols in place:

  • Masks required for any employee who has not yet been fully vaccinated, and/or who has not yet reached
    the two-week immunity point.

  • Masks may be worn by any employee who chooses to do so at their own discretion.

  • Masks may be worn by any customer who chooses to do so at their own discretion. If you're going maskless,
    we ask that you be fully vaccinated.

  • Employees not allowed to work when showing any signs of illness, per Central District Health guidelines.

  • We ask that guests who are ill don't dine with us. We'll save you a table for a later date.

  • All menus, check presenters, tables, chairs, banquettes, etc. wiped down between guests. We're in the habit of doing this after a year, so it makes sense to continue.

  • We have installed The Dust Free® Active Air system in our restaurant. The purifier's unique technologies target air quality problems at the source using environmentally-friendly oxidizers and ionization system to safely and effectively purify the air. Read more about it here.

  • Hand sanitizer and masks available for staff and guests.

  • Maintaining our kitchen with zero violations standards with Central District Health (license #44561).

  • Supporting the Inn at 500’s commitment to be the cleanest and safest hotel in Idaho.

Reservations can be made on OpenTable via our website Takeout with touchless, curbside pick up
can be ordered on our website as well.

Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
We hope to see you soon, and we appreciate your support of our local, independently-owned restaurant!
