Travelers may be in for a rude surprise when they get the bill for a meal at a casual wharfside lobster restaurant. Prices posted for lobsters are per pound, not per lobster. This can be inadvertently misleading, as a range of prices is often posted -- for example, $6.99 FOR 1 1/4-LB. LOBSTERS, $7.99 FOR 1 1/2-LB. LOBSTERS, and so on. That's the price per pound, not the total price, so you'll need do a little math to figure out the final price of your lobster.
An entire book could be written about Moody’s Diner (tel. 207/832-7785) in Waldoboro—in fact, it has. This is the place to stop on Route 1 when traversing north toward Acadia and points beyond. Not because the food’s amazing so much as it’s simply throwback to an earlier time: sticky-sweet pies and only-in-Maine specials like boiled dinner on Thurs, haddock with egg sauce on Fri, and of course, baked beans on Sat. The place simply serves food you can find almost nowhere else in the state, the old food ways are disappearing that fast. Finish with Indian pudding or one of those mile-high pies—walnut cream and rhubarb are two good choices, though any of them will satisfy. The prices, too, seem nearly locked in 1948, which is when Moody’s first opened for business.
