Update: It is with a heavy heart that we remind you Mama’s Pasta and Brew will be permanently closing in just two short days.

Mama’s will be serving its friends and loyal regulars for the last time on November 30.

A few weeks after that, the Campus Partners wrecking ball will swing through and reduce the dive to a pile of rubble.


Since the announcement of its closure, the owners have been collecting patrons’ favorite stories and memories from Mama’s to be compiled into a book of short stories.

Mama’s t-shirts are also for sale for 20 bucks.

“Please stop by one last time to say hi,” wrote Mama’s Pasta and Brew on Facebook.

08/28/2018: The OSU wrecking ball has claimed another victim: Mama’s Pasta and Brew.

The dive bar in an alley between E. 14th and E. 15th Ave will close for good on November 30.

Mama’s posted on Facebook that the university has purchased the property and will be demolishing it mid-December.


“There are a lot of people,memories, and Buckeye traditions that make Mama’s the campus tradition it has been since 1977,” Mama’s wrote on Facebook. “Thank you to all of our customers, but most of all our loyal regulars and Hall of Famers who make Mama’s the special place it is.”

They invite everyone to come in and share a drink, food, game of darts, a kiss to the Moose, and reminisce before the doors close forever.
