The Cannon Lounge opened last summer on Main Street in Rochester.

The restaurant closed last month after less than a year in business. The menu offered up a variety of traditional American food including burgers, macaroni and cheese and ribs.

The location at 45 North Main St., has housed a few restaurants over the past few years including Slim's Tex Mex and the Publick House.

The owners of the building say they've already received interest in the space, including eateries and breweries.

It's nice not to see empty store fronts in downtown Rochester. So I hope that whatever business moves into the spot, it has a nice long run. Rochester, like any other town, looks much better with a bustling downtown.
