Pier 42 Restaurant at Sunset Marina is named in recognition of the Old Hwy 42 Bridge that was dropped to the lake bottom when the new bridge for Hwy 111 was built. The restaurant and Marina are anchored to the Old Hwy 42 at the bottom of the lake and the entire structure by definition is a PIER - thus the name.
Pier 42's General Manager is Robert Felder. His family has been residents of Byrdstown for over 25 years and his father, now deceased, started the Chamber of Commerce.
