O'Leary's Space Goes Up for Sale

The Sunset Hills pub, co-owned by actor John Goodman, seeks a new owner after 16 years in business. Where will you go for your fried pickles and other Irish fare now?

Residents may soon have to say goodbye to .

The Sunset Hills pub is on the market for just shy of $400,000, according to commercial real estate site LoopNet.com.

The establishment, best known for its fried pickles and connection to co-owner John Goodman, has been in business for 16 years. A representative for Kaplan Real Estate told Patch health issues played a factor in the family's decision to retire from the restaurant business.

Jan O'Leary confirmed Thursday that they posted the space for sale.

The 4,500 space includes furniture and equipment, 192 patio seats, even 11 flat-screen TVs. O'Leary said future owners can choose to retain the pub's identity, or re-open as a new space.

The restaurant was on New Year's Eve 2010, and the restaurant hosted a fundraiser to benefit the storm's victims, according to KSDK.

Jean... You about 90% wrong. THe Sunset HIlls cop did not leave O'Learys after 5 drinks. She DID leave before 11:00p. She had her accident at 1:45am after leaving Fandango's at Doughtery Ferry and Big Bend, but Goodman's name isn't on Fandango's note. And as for your assessment of John's character on New Year's Eve Tornado. John was not O'Leary's when the tornado hit. He was on his way on there. He arrived well after the tornado hit. After he checked on his friends and others and the police ASKED to him to leave the area... he went to one of his oldest friend's FUNERAL. IS that okay with you Jean? Does John or Kevin, whomever need to make an announcement to you as to why they are leaving? Oh by they way none this is really your F-ing business to begin with but if you are going to inject your opinion; back it up with FACTS.

Actually Jimmy, the new owner hasn't taken over yet. That will occur after the first of the year.

The new owner is "Jason" Green. He has been the general manager of McGurk's for more than 10 years. I am really excited to see him take over this restaurant. He has done an astounding job with McGurk's over the past decade. I can only see great promise as he becomes the owner and manager here at O'Leary's. I can't wait to see my new friend and his wife, who is an amazing chef, put their great spin on this establishment!
