Kiefer and his Crocs-wearing pops reunited outside a Santa Monica restaurant on Thursday.

Isn't TMZ the ones that reported that Keifer had NO visitations from anyone while in the slammer...INCLUDING HIS FATHER????? They made it seem like there was friction or a problem between the two of them. So whats the deal TMZ??? You make it seem like there's a problem and then you show a pic like this one. MAKE UP YOUR MINDS-- YOU'RE ACTING LIKE BRITTNEY SPEARS' ....CONFUSING AND BI-POLAR TO THE REST OF US.

Go, Kiefer!    

Kiefer didn't put *anyone* on his visitation list except for his lawyer and his doctor. Who knows why for sure, but it sure seems to me like it was in line with his behavior around every aspect of his arrest, sentencing and incarceration. He did it low-key and under the radar and on his own.

Not because of the fact that he didn't have his dad on his visitor's list while he was in jail but for lots of other reasons, I don't think that they've had a close relationship through the years but, if reports are correct, this was the second time they'd had dinner since he's been out of jail. If this whole thing somehow brings them closer, I think that would be great.

To #8 - SmokingJoe -

AMEN. It takes a Real Man to simply buckle down and do the hard time... it takes integrity and humility, both severely lacking in Hollyweird... I used to feel uncomfortable watching Keifer in his various projects, as he is a dead-ringer for my ex - but I'm long over that. He is a talented actor and, as he has demonstrated, an exceptional human being. GO TEAM KEIFER !!

What a nice photo!!! Kiefer and Donald may have had their differences in the past, but it sure looks as if the dignified and admirable way Kiefer handled his recent troubles helped to bring father and son closer together. I sure hope so! And what an admirable guy Kiefer just couldn't handle adversity any better than Kiefer has, not only during his incarceration, but even going way back to his arrest a few months ago. He handled it all just perfectly! You rock, Kiefer!
