Cattlemens restaurant, an anchor tenant at Montgomery Village for more than 40 years, has nixed a move to Rohnert Park and will remain at the Santa Rosa shopping center.

Wayne Holloway, president and chief executive officer at Cattlemens, announced an agreement Thursday with mall owner David Codding to extend its lease at Montgomery Village. Mall management and Cattlemens will remodel the restaurant, he said.

"We have been part of Montgomery Village for over 40 years and we are very appreciative of the cooperation from the shopping center management towards improving the experience for Cattlemens guests," he said in a statement.

Cattlemens management had considered moving the steakhouse to the former Latitude restaurant in Rohnert Park.

Founded in 1968, the Santa Rosa-based company employs more than 500 workers and operates a chain of eight Western-themed restaurants in Northern California.
