After just a few months on the market, O'Leary's has a new owner.
The Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen approved business and liquor licenses Nov. 30 for Phillip Greene.
The Sunset Hills pub, best known for its fried pickles and connection to co-owner John Goodman, was in business under its original owners for 16 years. A representative for Kaplan Real Estate told Patch in July health issues played a factor in the family's decision to retire from the restaurant business.
Greene assured the board that fried pickles will stay, though he's open to other menu suggestions.
Greene will be taking over the space sometime after the first of the year.
The restaurant was one of several structures damaged on New Year's Eve 2010, and the restaurant hosted a fundraiser to benefit the storm's victims, according to KSDK.
