Opened in 1940 by Warren "Pete" Wurm as a basic six-stool clam and lobster stand at the southern end of Maine's coastal strip, Warren's has grown under four different owners and now sells 50,000 pounds of lobsters a year and seats around 350 customers. This 1950s menu is one of our best-sellers and looks amazing blown up as a poster or print, with the king lobster sitting on his throne. The interior menu offers 25 different lobster dishes with a Lobster Thermidor coming in as the most expensive at $4.75. The same dish costs $33.00 as of July 2012, which makes it very good value indeed according to a price comparison using the Cool Culinaria Price Index. $4.75 in 1955 is now the equivalent of $40.66.
