Skrine Chops is on the market. 

The barbeque restaurant at 7230 Madison St. in Forest Park was listed for sale on Feb. 11, according to a post by The Sokol Group realtor agency. 

"If you love Skrine's yummy food, they will continue doing catering from another location," the post reads. "There is no 'For Sale' sign; establishment is running business as usual until sale. Please do not disturb employees or clients when you come in to check it out." 

The 3,000-square-foot restaurant features a private room for events upstairs, an outdoor area and a studio apartment. The Sokol Group is asking $850,000 for the space — "you get everything but the name/phone number," the post reads. 

Owner Steve Skrine, of Oak Park, was unable to comment on the move. But "if this transformation takes place in the future, Steve will continue to provide his delicious food in many different ways: on-site grilling, catering for celebratory occasions, other businesses, local events and organizations," reads a post on Skrine Chops' Facebook site on Feb. 12. The restaurant is still accepting bookings and reservations for its upstairs party room.
