Outback Steakhouse, Durham, NC, Thursday, October 30, 2014, 7 pm
Decibel Reading: 79 dB Sound Equivalent: Alarm Clock
Conversation: Raised voices and repetitions necessary
Comments: We were fortunate to be seated at a booth along the perimeter – which reduced some of the dining activity/noise. However, this booth did not have the typical cushions that assist in absorbing noise. Hard floors and lots of activity at a nearby bar and birthday celebration contributed to the overall interference of conversation. Although we enjoyed the food, perhaps a different time would have been better to catch up with a family member. Frequent repetitions were necessary and frustrating.
